Remove Disambiguation type search results while adding a Wikipedia Preview
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Disambiguation-type search results don't provide value for site editors when they're adding Wikipedia previews for words or phrases. This task is focused on removing these results to enhance the experience for adding a preview.

Proposed solution

We can improve the search experience by excluding disambiguation-type search results from the search.

QA test

There should be no way to have a disambiguation-type result show up from the search.

@SBisson There were no disambiguation-type results that showed up from the search as seen in the examples I used below in .webm. This will be moved to design sign-off. Thanks for all you work!
