Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description SJ 2004-08-27 00:58:23 UTC
Make the "go to bug #" box in the sidebar function as a search box, if anything
but a numeral is entered.    There is currently no one-click search option; one
has to go to the "Search bugs" page first; and to encourage fewer dup bugs, we
should make search as intuitive and easy as possible.

I was searching for biographical material on Paul Vixie and "Googled" him. Google found your page on him at http://en.wikipedia.org/
wiki/Paul_Vixie but your own search at your main encyclopedia site failed to find the link, returning the following web page: http://
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=%22Paul+Vixie%22&go=Go

This may point to a problem or problems in your search engine or your indexing.

WIth quotes around the search term, you're not getting an exact title match. Full search is temporarily disabled during 
reindexing and setup of new search servers.
