Description Andrew Dunbar 2008-03-13 04:15:52 UTC
We have a Wiktionary mirror with DidYouMean at

DidYouMean posts suggestions on articles and "go" results but not on "search" results.
On its previous test site it did post suggestion on search results.

It seems there are various search configurations and DidYouMean does not take them all into account. Or it could be the new site is handling an error under these circumstances considering the message displayed: "There was a problem with the wiki search. This is probably temporary; try again in a few moments, or you can search the wiki through an external search service".

Even if this is an error condition DidYouMean should be able to post its useful suggestions there.
