I am awesome.
I'm talking about [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Fbsplash&diff=167880&oldid=prev] and [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Splashy&diff=167881&oldid=prev]. Why did you change them to direct links? --Karol 17:24, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

:The thing is that the <nowiki>{{Package AUR|}}</nowiki> templates sadly only lead to a search page showing (only) the said package, while actual links go straight to the package's "home page". --Det 18:33, 29 October 2011 (EDT)
+
::I think we should file a bug report. The AUR should send you to the package page if you run an "exact name" search and there's a result. The search bar is already visible on all pages and the advanced options can still be opened on package pages so it can be left open after a search using "exact name" just like it is now. -- [[User:Thestinger|thestinger]] 23:45, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

:::@Det, I understand your point, but we're trying to give a more consistent, standardized style to articles (see [[Help:Style]]), so please don't use direct links, probably the most proper way to improve this situation is pursuing thestinger's idea on the bug tracker. Can you restore [[Template:AUR]] where you removed it? Thank you, we all recognize the valuable work you've been doing on the wiki for so long :) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 10:56, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

::::Been a while since I last came here. I'll do the bug report in a week or so. My exam week starts tomorrow. --[[User:Det|Det]] 10:30, 23 November 2011 (EST)
+
:::::Please note: ''The AUR is essentially in maintenance mode. No new features are planned. If you want a bug fixed, or a feature implemented it's probably best to write a patch and send it to the aur-dev mailing list.''

:::::I glanced over the relevant code that would require modification:
+
:::::* [http://projects.archlinux.org/aur.git/tree/web/html/packages.php packages.php]
+
:::::* [http://projects.archlinux.org/aur.git/tree/web/lib/pkgfuncs.inc.php pkgfuncs.inc.php] ({{ic|pkg_search_page()}})
+
:::::* [http://projects.archlinux.org/aur.git/tree/web/template/pkg_search_results.php pkg_serach_results.php]
+
:::::This change would not be trivial but is certainly feasible. However, I see nothing wrong with returning a single-result search page.
+
:::::-- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 14:43, 1 December 2011 (EST)
+
::::::Yeah, well, it's completely unnecessary. The user is going to click the single result anyway. --[[User:Det|Det]] 04:42, 2 December 2011 (EST)
+
:::::::You know, I meant that _having_ to click the single result is completely unnecessary. Is the AUR still in maintenance mode? --[[User:Det|Det]] 16:31, 22 February 2012 (EST)
