4.42. BlueSpiceTagSearch

What is BlueSpiceTagSearch?

BlueSpiceTagSearch allows the integration of a configurable search field in articles, by providing tag that can be inserted on page. This search field relies on BlueSpiceExtendedSearch.

Inserting TagSearch tag


<bs:tagsearch />

can be inserted to the page directly in wikitext or using "Insert magic" menu of VisualEditor. For more information on how to insert magic words, see BlueSpiceInsertMagic.

Once the tag is inserted on the page, if using VisualEditor, a configuration dialog (inspector) will be displayed. Here, all aspects of TagSearch can be configured.


Configuration of TagSearch tag

ns Namespace(s) List of namespaces in which to search. Namespaces can be entered by using their IDs or names, separated by pipe (|). IDs and names cannot be mixed. Correct entries are: "1|6|8", "Help|QM", while invalid is "1|QM"
cat Category(-ies) List of categories in which to search. Mutltiple categories must be separated by pipe (|) - "Cat1|Cat2"

Multiple tags can be added to single page, with same or different configurations.


Using TagSearch tag

Once the page with

<bs:tagsearch />

is saved, search field will be shown at the place in text where the text was inserted.

Typing in the field will show autocomplete list of results.

Clicking on search icon in the field or hitting Return will lead to full-text search in <code>Special:Search-Center</code>
