Description Michael Barbieri 2008-11-13 04:53:34 UTC
In Wikipedia (and probably all the others), I will often attempt to search for something because when I just typed it into the search bar in my browser, a page came up which was not the thing I was looking for.  So I want to do an actual search and find what I'm looking for.

Unfortunately, when I start typing it in, all the results starting with what I've currenly typed pop up and cover the "Search" button (as well as the "Go" button), and the default for pressing Enter is Go.

So it's a pain to type something in and click "Search".

I think an easy fix for this would be to make these reccommended results pop up *above* the search box, instead of below.  This would probably cover up some links, but when you're typing in the search bar, your next click is less likely to be a link than it is to be one of those buttons.  So it makes sense to not cover up those buttons.

Changing Product: Wikimedia → Mediawiki
Changing Component: WikiBugs → User Interface
Reason: The wikibugs component is designed for the I.R.C. bot.

The explicit search button is gone now in the quick search, so its populated type-ahead results do not cover it anymore. You can just hit the Enter key on your keyboard or click on the magnifier icon.

Closing as obsolete.
