Description Tom Gilder 2004-11-18 21:05:29 UTC
It'd be a major usability bonus to be able to insert a search box into the actual content on Wikipedia's 
Main Page. I believe it should be the first thing people see, and not easy to miss.

We'd need an extension and some template/tag to insert it into the content.

See http://tom.me.uk/2004/11/wikipedia-search-box.html for an example of how this could look.
Comment 1 Zigger 2005-07-23 04:20:53 UTC
Erik's recent "inputbox" extension for v1.5 allows this.

Announcement  : http://mail.wikipedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2005-July/030579.html
