Description:
A question from Commons:Help Desk ( at http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:Help_desk&oldid=73106579#Special:Search ):

How can one search for the content of a field of [[Commons:Template:Information]] including an URL, e.g. "author=[http://www.geograph.org.uk/profile/1234567890" ?

If there was just a name, e.g "author=Steve" search works just fine ( [[Commons:Special:Search/"author=Steve"]]) easy to do.

If it's currently not possible, can it be enabled?

lsearchd has reached its end of life and won't be improved further. I'm marking this WONTFIX as a result.

In the new CirrusSearch, we're expanding all wikitext to its final form (with HTML stripped).

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
