Description mittnavnher 2010-08-12 18:47:17 UTC
Hi. I'm very tired of constantly changing between Norwegian and English when I perform searches. It would be very nice if you added an option to display two (or more) search boxes at the front page.

Best regards from Norway

Switching between Norwegian and English when doing a search.

Could you please explain something more?
Comment 2 Niklas Laxström 2010-09-13 17:18:13 UTC
I guess he wants to search multiple Wikipedias at the same time.
Comment 3 Nemo 2012-08-23 17:48:09 UTC
[[]]? Do you mean in the www portal?
More useful is the request to search multiple projects in the same language at the same time, a feature which was enabled and soon disabled a while ago (there's a bug about it I believe).

WDsearch does work on its own in Reasonator. It can be configured to show more results that what it does when implemented in the extended Wikipedia search..

So yes, it will work on eg In essence it will find whatever is available in Wikidata in any language.
