So it turns out that the search function on Wikipedia’s HawHaw-powered mobile gateway hasn’t been working for a long time, not because it wasn’t implemented, but because it was screen-scraping the search results page.
Some little detail of the results layout changed ages ago, breaking it. Nice! Well, I’ve redone it to use the MediaWiki web service API which should be a little more stable.
Search works again, yay!
Even if the correct search result is fifth in the output *cough*
Hey, we’re workin’ on it. 😉
