Author: stanley

Can you implement search using LIKE condition in special:allpages? So, instead
of "Display pages starting at", it would be "Display pages with title like".

So, enter search condition "%hockey%" will returns:

  • 2000 Women's Hockey Olympic Qualifier
  • 2001 Men's Champions Challenge (field hockey)
  • ...
  • Hockey
  • Hockey (disambiguation)
  • Hockey Canada
  • ...
