Description David Augusto Villa 2006-12-31 09:18:43 UTC
Pressing Go or Search without entering any text in the search field redirects to 
Special:Search (apparently, or by request: bug 8054). It would be nice to be able to 
restrict the namespaces from that page. Right now you have to do whatever you've defined 
as your default search (or the default for default searches for those who haven't edited 
their preferences) which is annoying when the servers are overloaded.

I second this option. If you enter a title in the search box on the left
sidebar, you get the option of restricting the search to specific namespaces. 
If you enter nothing and hit search, you just the blank searchbar in the main
part of the screen without the option of restricting the search to specific
namespaces.  Can you add that option to the blank search page?

Core search UI already does this; will go live on Wikipedia when I switch the front-end over later today... :D
