Search patterns[编辑]

Search patterns are Lua patterns, which are similar to regular expressions. This means that ^$()%.[]*+-? characters have special meaning, such as . matching any character. To search for those characters themselves, they need to be escaped by prefixing a %

For piped links, both the target article name as well as the displayed text are searched for matches. Images and image captions are not searched for matches.

Template:Bulb Tip: To make a letter in a search pattern case-insensitive, put both the upper-case and lowercase letter inside square-brackets, i.e. [Aa]pple will match both An apple is... and Apples are....
