Description Steve Bennett 2006-06-16 21:48:05 UTC
It would be nice if, when the user searches for (with Go button) an [[article]]
or a {{template}}, the interface handled them specially. To wit:

[[Article]] -> as if the user had requested Article
{{Template1}} -> as if the user had requested Template:Template1

Just a little convenience. I'm talking about the Go box in the Monobook skin.
Comment 1 Platonides 2006-06-22 12:48:07 UTC
I'd add this query to the URL behaviour:  /wiki/[[article]]  and 
/wiki/{{Template1}} They'd redirect instead of going to [[Bad title]] (they're
forbidden characters in article names:
Comment 2 Rob Church 2006-06-22 15:01:19 UTC
No, the request is quite clear. When the user shoves "{{foo}}" in the search box
and hits Go, the thing should be transformed to Template:Foo and looked for.
Comment 3 Platonides 2006-06-22 16:28:46 UTC
Yes, *he* asks for it on the Go search. *I* ask such behaviour for URLs too.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-06-22 17:49:59 UTC
You will not receive your request. He may.

So it's been seven years. Nothing happened.

Do we still want it? Because I'm inclined to close it as WONTFIX.

(Also changing component.)
Comment 7 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-10-16 14:18:01 UTC
WONTFIXing per above.
