Fix search in AWB

  • Problem: For AutoWikiBrowser it is impossible to make the list using insource with regexp and other keywords. The list has to be done in other complex ways, although in Wikipedia everything works through a simple search.
  • Who would benefit: AWB editors
  • Proposed solution: Improve the search in AWB so that it works with keywords and so that you can pick up a list of what you can get in the search on the site. Would be useful search option in a separate namespace.

insource: does work in AutoWikiBrowser. It used to not work, but version already supports it (and maybe some earlier versions too). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 18:50, 2 December 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Why has this proposal not been retracted yet? --bdijkstra (talk) 19:38, 8 December 2017 (UTC)[reply]
