namespace support for r32809 (1.70 KB, patch)

html typo fix (1.70 KB, patch)

Description Eugene Zelenko 2007-05-28 14:36:18 UTC
Will be useful to add prefix index search to Special:Withoutinterwiki, because list of pages could be very long for manual browsing.

Also Special:Withoutinterwiki show pages only from article namespace. Ability to browse Category and Project (like Wikipedia), may be Template could be very useful addition to Special:Withoutinterwiki.

Prefix index search is already implemented.

Here is a patch to support namespace filtering.

Patch gives conflicts with trunk. Can you please provide an update?
Comment 4 Sumana Harihareswara 2011-11-06 13:52:56 UTC
Nicolas, I'm sorry it took more than a year for someone to look at your patch.  We're aiming on being much quicker to respond now.  If you have time to update your patch so that it works with Subversion trunk, please do so -- if you need help, feel free to stop in to #mediawiki on FreeNode IRC.

Is there any progress upon the feature requested?
Comment 6 Sumana Harihareswara 2012-09-29 16:05:13 UTC
It looks like no one has submitted this change into our source control system recently?  I recommend for anyone who wants to give that a try.
Comment 7 Pavel Selitskas [wizardist] 2012-11-28 15:26:17 UTC
This special page is considered expensive and prefix search is not enabled for cached pages, so Wikipedia users won't see it any way.

I revised Nicolas' patch and submitted my try to Gerrit:

Patch needs rework - Pavel, would you have time for that? 
If not, could you reset the assignee to default?
