Entity does not exist message should link to Special:Search
Closed, DeclinedPublic


When i "hack" an URL on I get this message:

"This data set does not exist. You can search the related logs to find out where it went. You can also create a new one."

This message[1] includes two links, one to the log and one to create the page, but no link to the search. The same message on Wikipedia includes a "search for" link[2][3] which is in my opinion the most useful and therefor the first one in the message.

To clean our backlogs I'm going to decline my own wish. The search is always visible in the top-right corner. As far as I know nobody ever run into the described issue again, not even myself. Adding an other link to that message comes with maintenance costs that don't seem to be worth it.
