Description Wiredtape 2008-01-29 20:58:17 UTC
Currently the auto suggest AJAX search is both case sensitive and also only searches for articles beginning with the string.. This of course results in the following examples:

Example 1:

Someone searches "cia"
results: none (of course I can't think of all of the other articles that start with "cia")

someone searches "CIA"
result: CIA

Example 2:
the following articles exist:
Government Agencies/CIA (subpage CIA)

someone searches "CIA"

only returns: CIA

someone searches: "blah"

returns: blah, blah/foo/bar/eek

I think this should be changed....and it is fairly easy to solve this...

First is already implemented in TitleKey extension.
Second won't be implemented because of performance issues.
