Usefulness of the pageEdit

I for one find this page useful. I am using it to navigate to Google search. --Dan Polansky 12:24, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Search brokenEdit

Search must be broken because it doesn't return any results, no matter what I try, 'Lovecraft', 'Conan' and 'Robert Howard' fail to return any results, searching has to be done thru Google. Can anyone confirm this?

Searching a categoryEdit

Is it possible to do a full text search but only in a certain category?Ferrylodge (talk) 18:58, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Cryptic instructionsEdit

On doing my first search ever in WikiSource, I got the folowing advice:

Wikisource recommends that users of this site amend their default search preferences. We recommend that you use the setting
Redirect mode with subphrase matching (advanced).
This setting allows searching subpages and redirects for your search term.

However, there are no instructions on how to so this. I don't have a clue. Deisenbe (talk) 11:31, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
