hi guys

let's use this page just for general wiki chit chat...

just upgraded the wiki (again)

the side bar headers are now collapsible
the search, which is case sensitive, now shows page titles as you type.

Is there a way to get a specific list of books that are on or before a certain year date? So for instance, if I wanted a list of all the English language books (with links to their individual pages) before 1980 or 1970 is there a way to do that? Swamisitar (talk) 08:41, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Very frustrated, I search on beyond and beyond, with no results turning up. I change it to Beyond and Beyond (note the capitalization) it finds the book. The search engine tool is too narrow, making it very difficult to find things if you misspell something or dont capitalize something. Is this something you could please fix?

Indeed, this is a great inconvenience, which makes it extremely difficult to work with Wiki. Maybe there is a way to improve the search without taking into account the capitalization?

I can only suggest using a third-party search engine (for example, G**gle) and add to the request: "site:". In this case, your reuest will only search on Wiki. You can also search the book you need by name in. --DhyanAntar 06:04, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

this is not quite correct. if you just type "beyond" (caps or not) you get a list of all pages which start with the word "beyond".

so, this quick list is only looking at an alpha-sorted list. once you press enter, you will get a complete listing of all books with "beyond" in its title.

but you will have to consult google for complex search strings like "Year of publication : 1960..1982" "English Publications"

Thanks for the update, I likely had pasted beyond and beyond in the window, or typed it too quickly. Got frustrated when no results came up. Just goes to show patience always pays off in the end. However, if I type beyond and beyond, it still doesn't seem to be able to connect it with Beyond and Beyond, that strikes me as odd that just not capitalizing a letter would cause the search tool to be able to find something. Thanks for taking the time to help me, much appreciated. Cheers. Swamisitar (talk) 15:32, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
