Search Tips

All searches are performed in page names and in full-text, where page name hits are listed first. To limit your search to a specific namespace; include the namespace preceeded by ”@” in the query. (e.g. “Quadri” @en:np).

The actions taken depends then upon what button is pressed;

  • If “Go” is pressed; WikiNova will attempt to jump to the specific page named in the search field.
  • If ”Search” is pressed; WikiNova will search for the specified text in full-text.

Namespace Defaulting

The namespace defaulting has three levels:

  1. If the current language cannot be determined, the search is restricted to English language pages. (As if @en was specified.)
  2. If the current language can be determined, the search is restricted to pages in the current language. (As if @lc was specified, where ”lc” is replaced by the current language code; see Language Codes in WikiNova.)
  3. If @namespace is specified, this overrides any other restrictions, and limits the search to the specified namespace. (In effect, the first element of @namespace is always the desired language.)
To search in all languages, end your query with ” @”.

Search Results

The search results are presented as such:

  1. Matching page names are listed in alphabetical order. These are not subject to namespace restrictions.
  2. Pages with full-text matches are listed in order of most to least hits. If a page is calculated to have a high relevance an excerpt from the text will be shown.
