Add ability to use semantic search fields
Open, LowestPublic


Request that ability to search on semantic fields is added to advanced search. Most document databases allow search by author, title, date published, publisher, ISBN etc. Particular problem on Wikisource where it is not possible to search for a phrase in the works of a particular author (that is author of the work, not of the wiki page).

Originally posted at bug 21988, advised to open new bug here.

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Lowest.Nov 22 2014, 12:08 AM
bzimport added a project: CirrusSearch.
bzimport set Reference to bz34011.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

Given the resources we have for working on Search, I just don't see this happening anytime soon. If you know someone with Lucene or Solr chops that can work on this, I'd love to get their help.

I think that even being able to restrict searches to a particular branch of the category tree would be great, and help considerably for this sort of thing at Wikisource.

[Merging "MediaWiki extensions/Lucene Search" into "Wikimedia/lucene-search2", see bug 46542. You can filter bugmail for: search-component-merge-20130326 ]

May be worth incorporating into CirrusSearch.
