Description Timwi 2006-12-07 16:37:24 UTC
Currently, calling this URL:

takes you to [[SJO]], which in turn is a redirect to [[Juan Santamaría
International Airport]].

I think [[Special:Search/Something]] should always bring up a page of search

CCing rainman on this.
Comment 2 Chad H. 2014-04-22 07:26:56 UTC
I would very much like to do this. I *hate* the Special:Search/Foo auto-redirection behavior.
Comment 3 Derk-Jan Hartman 2014-04-22 07:47:11 UTC
I think this is a good idea. I recently had to fix a few URLs to append the param for full search, which I think is a tad counter intuitive.

Change 127879 had a related patch set uploaded by Chad:
Remove "Go" behavior from Special:Search
Comment 5 Gerrit Notification Bot 2014-04-30 17:41:10 UTC
Change 127879 abandoned by Chad:
Remove "Go" behavior from Special:Search

This needs an RFC and more careful thought.
