I'm running a wiki using MediaWiki, and when I search for a page the results are clogged with redirects from various capitalization redirects to a page when I only want the result page to appear in search.

Although I want the redirects, is there a way to prevent them from appearing in the search results?

MediaWiki used to have an option for suppressing redirects pages from search, but it was removed in version 1.23. From their search API documentation:

srredirects: Include redirect pages in the search. From 1.23 onwards, redirects are always included. (Default: false) (removed in 1.23)

  • Do you know of any extensions that could achieve the same effect? Also, the pages I want to hide all share the same category, so is there a way I can exclude a specific category instead? Feb 8, 2015 at 0:25
