Description Ilya Schurov 2007-02-21 14:14:03 UTC
Internal MediaWiki search engine first tries to find an article with title that
match query exactly, and if it fails perform full-text (or not so full-text)
search with the query. It seems to be logical to allow user who found an article
he/she interested in via full-text search to quickly create a redirect from the
search query to this article. It can help other people who will try to find on
the same topic. It can be done by providing a link "create redirect" in the
search results.
