Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.

Description kissall 2004-09-18 15:53:03 UTC
I bet many people tried at least once (I did several times)to put a bug name into go to 
bug# box and search it. I have to click "Search bugs" each time to do what I really 
Wouldn't it more intuitive to put search box accepting a bug name here instead of a 
accuate number for a particular bug?
Comment 1 River Tarnell 2004-09-18 15:54:17 UTC
You can search using the box on the main page.
Comment 2 kissall 2004-09-18 16:03:26 UTC
Oh, yes. Thank you very much.
And how about the box in the navigation bar? It still does not accept 
a name for a bug right now.

Currently when trying to put text in the search box in the sidebar, bugzilla comes back with this ugly message:

  Invalid Bug ID

  The 'bug number' is invalid.  If you are trying to use QuickSearch,
  you need to enable JavaScript in your browser. To help us fix this
  limitation, add your comments to bug 70907.

So clearly this is *intended* to work (so long as JavaScript is enabled) but something isn't working. Timwi, can you check if there's 
some JS bit missing from the template?
Comment 4 Timwi 2004-09-18 19:19:32 UTC
No, the JavaScript is perfectly in place. Some people on #mediawiki have
reported that it works for them.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2004-09-18 19:22:29 UTC
Changed these lines in useful-links.html.tmpl:
        <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="localconfig.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="quicksearch.js"></script>
        <form name="searchform" id="searchform" method="get" action="show_bug.cgi" onsubmit="QuickSearch(; 
return false;">

Seems to work for me now.
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2004-09-18 19:23:12 UTC
Timwi, was that before or after I added the JavaScript to the template? ;)
