Description T. Gries 2005-06-22 09:30:45 UTC
Automatic suggestions for wiki page names as in Google Suggest or
Objectgraph-Free Dictionary

I propose to investigate, whether we can offer this technique before users
create new pages. Admittedly, it can cause heavy loads to network and databases.

Automatic suggestions for wiki page names as in Google Suggest or
Objectgraph-Free Dictionary

Google has a beta implementation called "Google Suggest" that automatically
suggests the terms ***while you type in the search field*** . You can try it out
by clicking on the link below and for instance typing the word "wiki".

***While you are typing the word***, Google Suggest shows suggestions that would
complete it (to accept 
the current suggested word you only need to use the right arrow in the keyboard)
and go on typing or selecting terms from the list that appear.

You can go on with the example completing the search terms wikipedia and so on.

http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en 

This enhancement is targetting the same problem as my other proposal [4] but you
now can see more and more internet sites offering such "live" searches.

The technique behind this is described in [3].

Fuzzy (approximate) wiki page title access - fuzzy bookmarking - auto search.
Comment 1 River Tarnell 2005-06-22 09:35:02 UTC
we already have this, it's just disabled at the moment because it creates too 
much load. 
Comment 2 T. Gries 2005-06-22 09:37:42 UTC
Thanks.
I need this.

Where exactly can I read about this (in MediaWiki context, documentation, CVS
?), pls. can you post URLs here ?

The Lucene server version needs some fixes, but we could probably do this without 
reliance on the external server as well.

¿is this the same as?

bug 974: "Did you mean . . ." search feature

Not *quite* but close to it.
Comment 7 T. Gries 2006-02-15 18:38:40 UTC
Using Ajax/XMLHttpRequest techniques, the site [1] shows, how this proposal 2486
could be implemented for the Wikipedias. Using [1], you can select the user
interface language and the Wikipedia language, you want "Search Suggest".

I propose that someone of the developers feeling competent enough writes such a
"MediaWikiSuggest" extension (it's relatively simple to write such "Ajax"
applications; a good introduction with sample code can be found in the second
Tutorial "Ajax Search Suggest" on [2])
