[EPIC] Basic UI/UX improvements to the special:search page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Readers are interested in finding content they are looking for. Styling based improvements on special:search page are focused on helping readers get a visually inviting experience that makes scanning and finding content on the special:search page easier. This is integrated in the existing user flow: a user gets to the special:search page after, for example, doing a search in the go bar and not getting an exact article match.

Use Cases

As a casual reader, I want to have an inviting search experience to
-Be able to assess relevance of results
-Easily scan search results
To find content that I am looking for.

Requirements

  • Users see improved Special:search UI as per Design Brief: Special:Search and initial designs (see description/requirements below)
  • Users should only see what is useful for them in clicking through to an article
  • Users should understand what each metadata item is about
  • [TBD:] "Create new page/ article not found" text does not give impression of a failed flow [investigation task T306554]
  • No regression for contributors – i.e. no automated workflows are broken; all results (meta)data still available for advanced users
  • Basic improvements are done progressively for all wikis pending community approval
