All the examples on this page have been commented out to prevent the page from being very slow to load. If you want to see the outcome of a search example, just edit the page and remove the comment tags around the desired example. You don't need to save the page, a preview will give you the search results; that way you can experiment with the examples and easily restore the page to its original state when you are done.

== Searching for pages containing a certain text string ==
  
 +
=== Text without wiki markup ===
 +
 +
Enter <code><nowiki>{{Search|</nowiki>''text''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code> anywhere to get the search results in the form of links. Here ''text'' can be plain text or a perl like regexp. Be careful to escape regexp meta characters. If the searched text contain wiki markup this template may nor give the desired results; see the next section.
 +
 +
The Search template searches only the main namespace, and only original English pages.
 +
 +
Example: To find all English pages containing the word 'application' - possibly capitalized enter this:
 +
{{Input|1=<nowiki>{{Search|[Aa]pplication}}</nowiki>}}
 +
<!--
 +
{{Search|[Aa]pplication}}
 +
-->
 +
 +
{{Info|1=The results should just be a link to each page containing the searched text. For some reason, however, some pages include the content at the beginning of the page, typically an info box, an image or tabular material. This can be avoided by ensuring that the pages searched start by <code><nowiki><languages /></nowiki></code>. If the page doesn't have translate tags this directive have no effect, but it prevents the unwanted inclusion of content from the page in the search result.}}
 +
 +
=== Translated text ===
 +
 +
Enter <code><nowiki>{{SearchLang|</nowiki>''text''<nowiki>|</nowiki>''lang''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code> anywhere to get the search results in the form of links. Here ''text'' can be plain text or a perl like regexp and ''lang'' is a language code. Be careful to escape regexp meta characters. If the searched text contain wiki markup this template may nor give the desired results; see the next section.
 +
 +
Example: To find all Danish pages containing the word 'program' - possibly capitalized enter this:
 +
{{Input|1=<nowiki>{{SearchLang|[Pp]rogram|da}}</nowiki>}}
 +
<!--
 +
{{SearchLang|[Pp]rogram|da}}
 +
-->
 +
 +
=== Pages linking to a given page ===
 +
 +
Use <code><nowiki>{{LinksTo|</nowiki>''full page name''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code>. The ''<tt>full page name</tt>'' must be the entire wiki link up to (but not including) one of the characters '|', ']' or '#' and excluding ''<tt>Special:myLanguage</tt>''. Note, that space characters in names are sometimes entered as '_', so in searches you should enter <code>[ _]</code> for spaces.
 +
 +
Example: To find all pages linking to [[Getting Help]] enter
 +
 +
{{Input|1=<nowiki>{{LinksTo|Getting[ _]Help}}</nowiki>}}
 +
<!--
 +
{{LinksTo|Getting[ _]Help}}
 +
-->
 +
 +
=== Text containing wiki markup ===

Normally, you'd want to copy all of this into your page and modify the <code>includematch</code> lines to the pattern you want to search for. Note the two <code>@</code>-characters; they mark the beginning and end of the actual search pattern. You can use any character instead of <code>@</code> as long as it does not appear in the actual pattern.
 +
 +
{{Note|1=Some characters such as <code>¤</code> do not work as pattern delimiters; perhaps only ASCII characters can be used?}}
 +
 +
{{Remember|2=Be aware!|1=The page count reported by each query is not the number of matching pages found, but the total number of pages searched in that group. That number should always be less than 500! If it is not then some of the pages will not have been searched.}}
 +
 +
If you want to search other namespaces than Main, just change that line. If you want to search the Main namespace and one or more other namespaces use <code>namespace = | Other</code>. The enpty string before the '|' means Main &mdash; ''never write <code>Main</code>''; that no longer works. <code>Other</code> can be one or more other namespaces separated by '|' characters.
 +
 +
The <code>nottitleregexp</code> lines filters out all translated pages including lingering old style translations and should not be touched. The <code>titlematch</code> lines are needed to split up the search into manageable chunks. There is a maximum of pages that can be handled by the <code>includematch</code> search; if too many pages pass through the title filters the first ones up to the maximum number will be searched; the rest will be silently ignored! Currently, the maximum seems to be somewhat more than 500. The <code>include</code> and <code>includemaxlength</code> should never be modified.

Matching content in pages: You need to include the contents of pages in this page (<code>include = *</code> does that) and then do a perl-like regexp on their contents to filter interesting pages (<code>includematch = ...</code>). If you are searching in translated pages (fx all Danish pages) it is often advantageous to have <code>namespace = Translations</code> set; otherwise you will get both all full pages and all translation units containing matching text &mdash; that could be a very long output.

Example UI on this Template:Catlist page
Search on this page

All the examples on this page have been commented out to prevent the page from being very slow to load. If you want to see the outcome of a search example, just edit the page and remove the comment tags around the desired example. You don't need to save the page, a preview will give you the search results; that way you can experiment with the examples and easily restore the page to its original state when you are done.

Searching for pages containing a certain text string

Text without wiki markup

Enter {{Search|text}} anywhere to get the search results in the form of links. Here text can be plain text or a perl like regexp. Be careful to escape regexp meta characters. If the searched text contain wiki markup this template may nor give the desired results; see the next section.

The Search template searches only the main namespace, and only original English pages.

Example: To find all English pages containing the word 'application' - possibly capitalized enter this:

{{Search|[Aa]pplication}}
Dialog-information.png
Information
The results should just be a link to each page containing the searched text. For some reason, however, some pages include the content at the beginning of the page, typically an info box, an image or tabular material. This can be avoided by ensuring that the pages searched start by <languages />. If the page doesn't have translate tags this directive have no effect, but it prevents the unwanted inclusion of content from the page in the search result.


Translated text

Enter {{SearchLang|text|lang}} anywhere to get the search results in the form of links. Here text can be plain text or a perl like regexp and lang is a language code. Be careful to escape regexp meta characters. If the searched text contain wiki markup this template may nor give the desired results; see the next section.

Example: To find all Danish pages containing the word 'program' - possibly capitalized enter this:

{{SearchLang|[Pp]rogram|da}}

Pages linking to a given page

Use {{LinksTo|full page name}}. The full page name must be the entire wiki link up to (but not including) one of the characters '|', ']' or '#' and excluding Special:myLanguage. Note, that space characters in names are sometimes entered as '_', so in searches you should enter [ _] for spaces.

Example: To find all pages linking to Getting Help enter

{{LinksTo|Getting[ _]Help}}

Text containing wiki markup

In case the Search template does not work for you use code like this to accomplish your desired result:

<DPL>
  namespace = 
  nottitleregexp = .*((/[a-z][a-z](.|-..)?)|([ _][(][a-z][a-z](...)?[)]))$
  titleregexp = ^[A-J]
  include = *
  includematch = @\{\{Remember\|@
  includemaxlength = 0
  format = ,\n* [[%PAGE%|%TITLE%]],,
  resultsheader = There are %TOTALPAGES% pages beginning with A-J\n
</DPL>
<DPL>
  namespace = 
  nottitleregexp = .*((/[a-z][a-z](.|-..)?)|([ _][(][a-z][a-z](...)?[)]))$
  titleregexp = ^K[A-Z]
  include = *
  includematch = @\{\{Remember\|@
  includemaxlength = 0
  format = ,\n* [[%PAGE%|%TITLE%]],,
  resultsheader = There are %TOTALPAGES% pages beginning with KA-KZ\n
</DPL>
<DPL>
  namespace = 
  nottitleregexp = .*((/[a-z][a-z](.|-..)?)|([ _][(][a-z][a-z](...)?[)]))$
  titleregexp = ^K[a-ce-z]
  include = *
  includematch = @\{\{Remember\|@
  includemaxlength = 0
  format = ,\n* [[%PAGE%|%TITLE%]],,
  resultsheader = There are %TOTALPAGES% pages beginning with Ka-Kz but not Kd\n
</DPL>
<DPL>
  namespace = 
  nottitleregexp = .*((/[a-z][a-z](.|-..)?)|([ _][(][a-z][a-z](...)?[)]))$
  titleregexp = ^Kd
  include = *
  includematch = @\{\{Remember\|@
  includemaxlength = 0
  format = ,\n* [[%PAGE%|%TITLE%]],,
  resultsheader = There are %TOTALPAGES% pages beginning with Kd\n
</DPL>
<DPL>
  namespace = 
  nottitleregexp = .*((/[a-z][a-z](.|-..)?)|([ _][(][a-z][a-z](...)?[)]))$
  titleregexp = ^[L-Z]
  include = *
  includematch = @\{\{Remember\|@
  includemaxlength = 0
  format = ,\n* [[%PAGE%|%TITLE%]],,
  resultsheader = There are %TOTALPAGES% pages beginning with L-Z\n
</DPL>

Normally, you'd want to copy all of this into your page and modify the includematch lines to the pattern you want to search for. Note the two @-characters; they mark the beginning and end of the actual search pattern. You can use any character instead of @ as long as it does not appear in the actual pattern.

Note
Some characters such as ¤ do not work as pattern delimiters; perhaps only ASCII characters can be used?

Be aware!
The page count reported by each query is not the number of matching pages found, but the total number of pages searched in that group. That number should always be less than 500! If it is not then some of the pages will not have been searched.


If you want to search other namespaces than Main, just change that line. If you want to search the Main namespace and one or more other namespaces use namespace = | Other. The enpty string before the '|' means Main — never write Main; that no longer works. Other can be one or more other namespaces separated by '|' characters.

The nottitleregexp lines filters out all translated pages including lingering old style translations and should not be touched. The titlematch lines are needed to split up the search into manageable chunks. There is a maximum of pages that can be handled by the includematch search; if too many pages pass through the title filters the first ones up to the maximum number will be searched; the rest will be silently ignored! Currently, the maximum seems to be somewhat more than 500. The include and includemaxlength should never be modified.


Finding all pages not yet marked for translation

<DPL>
  namespace = 
  nottitleregexp = .*((/[a-z][a-z](.|-..)?)|([ _][(][a-z][a-z](...)?[)]))$
  titleregexp = ^[A-J]
  include = *
  includenotmatch = #<languages[ ]?/>#
  includemaxlength = 0
  format = ,\n* [[%PAGE%|%TITLE%]],,
  resultsheader = There are %TOTALPAGES% pages beginning with A-J\n
</DPL>
...


Find all templates using a given template

<DPL>
  namespace = Template
  include = *
  includematch = /{{Icon/
  includemaxlength = 0
  format = ,\n* [[%PAGE%|%TITLE%]],,
  resultsheader = There are %TOTALPAGES% templates using the Icon template\n
</DPL>
