Description billinghurst 2014-08-20 07:21:22 UTC
It has been expressed at English Wikisource by a non-tech, not bugzilla-type person, and otherwise some general support expressed by other users, that the default display of 20 search results is considered unhelpful and that they would like to see the ability to have a personal user preference that allows them to set and/or save their preferred number of search results to display.

As the search preferences for the namespaces to search is now a preference in the Special:Search area, is it also possible to also have the ability to specifically set the number of preferred results to display? Alternatively, once you have the specific number that you wish displayed, actually displayed, may it be possible to have the "Remember selection for future searches" also apply to the number of results.

Also didn't see that this belong in either of the Extensions about specific searching as this is more about the MW presentation of results, rather than the searching capacity itself.

Thanks for your consideration.
