VisualEditor: Default search text for images should ignore text before / in namespaces which support sub-pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

From English Wikipedia, John Broughton (♫♫) 22:40, 12 July 2013 (UTC):

It's not a high priority, but still, a suggestion: the default search text, for an image search, is the complete page name. So, for example, if someone is editing a draft article, at User:WhateverEditorName/Article name, the default search text is "WhateverEditorName/Article name". It would be better if the default ignored the final slash and all text to the left of it; in this case, it would mean the default search would be "Article name".

Bug title is incorrect, it would rather be something like "Default search text for images should ignore text before /"

I've changed it. Titles are editable in bugzilla, much like wikitext. :)

You missed my main point in the title : it's text "before" the / that should be ignored, not the text "after" ;-)

I don't see how I can change bug titles. Are you sure everyone has the rights to do so ?
The only things I can do is add a comment, add an attachment, ...

Ah, I see. :) I don't actually know if everyone has the rights to do so - bugzilla is a strange and wondrous land to me.

No, not everyone has the editbugs permission. Andre can give you it, CCing him.

No, not everyone has the editbugs permission.

See bug 40497 for the editbugs problem.
