Table of Contents

Built in search features of MediaWiki may not be sufficient for some use cases, you might especially be interested in

  • the possibility of searching for semantic properties or doing facetted search (search that can be narrowed down by semantic properties)
  • the possibility of searching inside the contents of uploaded files (e.g. PDF documents)
  • the possibility of including search results outside of your (Semantic) MediaWiki instance (e. g. other Websites/Wikis or documents resinding on a filesystem)

Semantic search

Other built-in options

None of these options provide the possibility to include sources from outside of the wiki.

External search

External search to support semantic context

  • mws:Extension:SolrStore, to search your semantic properties with the power of a fulltext search engine (lucene), by defining custom search forms.
