This is a MediaWiki Action API parameter description for the "profile" parameter to the "query+prefixsearch" module. See API:Main page at for general information.

This message is the general description for the parameter; the meanings of the possible values of the parameter are specified in separate messages.

  • $1 - Module parameter prefix, e.g. "bl"

  • $3 - Module name, e.g. "backlinks"
  • $4 - Module path, e.g. "query+backlinks"

For other messages relating to this module, see:

Despite the similarity in names, this module is not intended to be equivalent to Special:PrefixIndex; for that, see action=query&list=allpages with the apprefix parameter. The purpose of this module is similar to action=opensearch: to take user input and provide the best-matching titles. Depending on the search engine backend, this might include typo correction, redirect avoidance, or other heuristics.")
