Description Bryan Tong Minh 2008-03-22 20:55:49 UTC
Api search returns empty page with MWSearch extension. See <>.
Comment 1 MER-C 2008-03-23 02:25:43 UTC
It appears the bug only applies to searches with the parameter srsearch=title which is the default for this parameter.

Not working:

Bumped severity to major.
Comment 2 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-03-23 13:01:01 UTC
That clarifies a lot. See this code in the MWSearch extension:

        // this stuff's a little broken atm
        global $wgLuceneDisableTitleMatches;
        if( $wgLuceneDisableTitleMatches ) {
            return null;
        } else {
            return LuceneSearchSet::newFromQuery( 'titlematch',
                $term, $this->namespaces, $this->limit, $this->offset );

Apparently a search can return null sometimes. The question is what to do when null is returned. Should we raise an error or silently fail and return an empty list?
Comment 3 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-03-23 13:17:42 UTC
Fixed in r32349. Will raise a search-text-disabled or search-title-disabled when either search type is disabled.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2008-03-24 19:24:36 UTC
Note that the split between title and text searching will probably go away entirely soon.
