Google search trick to help with suffixes[edit]

In Google search, try the following (quote marks included):

  • "*%s"
  • " * %s"

where you replace "%s" with the suffix you're interested in. It's imperfect but useful. — ¾-10 20:11, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

This will find references to those pages on other sites as well, you'd be better off with:

  • inurl:"wiki/*%s"
  • inurl:%s (assuming your string isn't present in "")

Passing parameters in wikilink[edit]

Is it possible to pass parameters in a wikilink to the PrefixIndex page as can be done in the transclusion syntax?

I.e like:

{{Special:PrefixIndex/{{FULLPAGENAME}}/ |hideredirects=1 |stripprefix=1}} If so, what's the proper syntax?

Search with trailing space[edit]

I wish to search all articles (and exclude redirects) that start with Dr without the dot after it. I understand that I cannot enclose the search term with quotes. If it was allowed, I only had to enter "Dr " with a space. But giving Dr followed by a space, is not working as the search seems to be removing the trailing space. Giving Dr. with a space after it also is returning results (such as Dr.I) that do not have space after Dr. . Jay (Talk) 08:00, 12 July 2021 (UTC)

@Jay, You might want to try a regex search e.g. intitle:/Dr / ― Qwerfjkltalk 08:01, 22 December 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. I forgot to inform that I had reposted this some months later at Help talk:Searching#Search with trailing space and got a response. Jay (talk) 08:54, 22 December 2021 (UTC)

Search question[edit]

Is there a way to search but hide subpages? Signed, I Am Chaos (talk) 06:20, 22 December 2021 (UTC)
