Forums: Index Help desk Why is Go-search not enabled by default?

I'm sure everyone has noticed that if you type something like "Itachi" into the search box and press Enter, it doesn't go straight to Itachi Uchiha but to a search results page, from which you have to click your way through. Or you have to wait for the suggestions to appear (which often don't appear in browsers like Opera and Safari) and then click on that suggestion. Either way you have to use both your keyboard and your mouse to get somewhere and there's no way to change this behavior unless you're logged in.

So my question is, is there some way to enable Wikia's Go-search by default even for logged-out users? If so, can somebody please do it?--Karunyan (talk) 02:28, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

I use Opera and suggestions appear ok for me. Don't know why it's not on by default, but there's a setting somewhere in "my preferences" to turn it on. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 03:13, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

Works for me in Safari as well... You can enable it in your Preferences or use a javascript someone coded a while ago to give it a monobook-like touch. ~ UltimateSupreme 05:41, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
OK I should've said Mobile Safari and Opera Mini.--Karunyan (talk) 07:19, July 10, 2013 (UTC)
For mobile, monobook is far better. ~ UltimateSupreme 08:05, July 10, 2013 (UTC)
