Description Dysprosia 2004-10-14 11:44:57 UTC
A nice enhancement would be to add the article title to the search text box if
the article did not exist, so the possible terms could be searched for with one
click and not reentering the terms again. For example, if one goes to, the search text would contain
"White albatross" as a default.

It's great that Special:Search/{{PAGENAME}} seems to work now (I don't think it
did before?) but it would still be good to have the text in the box for

This was fixed some time in the past; I don't know when, but it's shown up now.
