    Fix for WordPress Codex Search 

    There has been an ongoing discussion for years on how to fix the WordPress Codex search functionality on WordPress.org. We should preserve some of those discussion links here [will add soon].

    In general, the original MediaWiki search was found to be lacking. It was replaced by Yahoo custom search, then Yahoo or Google customized search that broke searches up by Codex documentation, Support Forum, and other. Today, it is run by Google and all search results are mixed together with no priority for Codex documentation.

    When someone searches for a specific Codex article title, the top results may or may not be the article. The search results in the forum may also not point to the key article someone is searching for.

    Other errors also result such as a search for “functions.php” which returns this: http://wordpress.org/search/functions.php

    codex search for functionsphp error 2012

    The discussion here should focus on specific bug reports and issues as well as solutions.

    Unwanted Images 

    Easy – Maybe Permissions Based

    If you have Codex permissions levels that will allow it, we need someone to go through all the images in the Codex (found on Special Pages) and remove all those self-promotion images and images uploaded for hotlinking that do not link to blog posts. The Codex will tell you what articles link to which images, so we’re looking for orphan images that have nothing to do with the Codex or WordPress and out of date and never used (useless not archival) images without attachment to links. Delete away.
