Wiki.... easier to find search

Post by junoslord »

The wiki is a bit confused as far as layout goes. For instance the search button is at the very bottom of the page and very small. Now that I found it I know where it is, but is there a way to move the search (or make another) button to the top of the screen and make it larger? Or fix it to a frame so that it follows you as you scroll?

A different theme might be beneficial, to help expose search a little better.

Honestly, the wiki search sucks anyway. Better use google to search and just add a "site:wiki.wesnoth.org" behind your search terms so that only the wiki is searched. The results you get will be significantly better in about 99.9% of all searches.

One could put a (findable) search form on the wiki which does just this, though.
