    I have started to work a bit on the REDUCE wiki. Maybe other developers want to have a look ... and join!

    I did so far not find any way to search this wiki?

    It would be helpful if someone knows how to do this or knows that this is really impossible.

      I am going to comment on my own question:

      After finding other project wikis that have a search bar, I
      had an email exchange with the Sourceforge support on it.

      Their first reply was:

      > I'm not sure which Wiki you are using on
      > However, my first hand experience with the Trac (Hosted
      > App) wiki proves out that search engine. We use Trac for

      > The search box there gets

      I then replied that I assume we are using wikispaces, which
      appears to me to be standard with Sourceforge, and I gave
      them a link to our current wiki. Their reply:

      > This is the Wiki Spaces wiki. I looked over my project and

      I think that a missing search is a HUGE disadvantage of a
      wiki. So I would like to switch very soon. I am going to
      invesitigate the options now.

      Please comment - and I might need a mouseclick by someone
      with the necessary priviliges at some point.
