Can increase http://www.wikipedia.org/, http://www.wiktionary.org/ and http://www.wikinews.org/ etc. page?
I think this seems to be a little nice when searching. Needed to check what is on something, do not enter the home job.
Can add a federated search function? Like while zh.wikibooks.org, zh.wikinews.org, zh.wikipedia.org, zh.wikiquote.org, zh.wikisource.org, zh.wiktionary.org, en.wikipedia.org search inside.

    Can add a federated search function?

    Hmmm... Interesting request. I think it will be difficult for the following reasons:

    • Searching across all offline wikis will be slower.
    • Customizing the search requires some work (I'd have to give you the ability to specify which wikis to search, and what order)
    • Wikimedia doesn't offer this feature. http://www.wikipeda.org requires that you specify a wiki (and doesn't search across it al)

    That said, someone else asked for this feature before, so I'm going to guess this will probably come up again.

    I'm going to mark this as a PFE for now. I'll return to it later when I revisit the idea of full-text search.

    Thanks.
