Remove "Enable simplified search bar (Vector skin only)" user preference from MediaWiki core
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The "Enable simplified search bar (Vector skin only)" user preference should be removed from MediaWiki core.

While it seems like this user preference would be inside [[mw:Extension:Vector]], it's not. It's inside includes/Preferences.php:


if ( $wgVectorUseSimpleSearch ) {
$defaultPreferences['vector-simplesearch'] = array(

		'type' => 'toggle',
		'label-message' => 'vector-simplesearch-preference',
		'section' => 'searchoptions/displaysearchoptions',

);

}

This should be an easy bug to resolve; marking it with the Bugzilla keyword
accordingly.

We should probably not do this, until "search" action is the default when people do not have JS enabled.
