Alright, so on my wiki, Fairy Tail Fanon, when I try to search for a template, it just gives me normal search results as if I'm looking for an article. That is, I can't search for any templates at all. This just randomly started happening. Is this just another glitch or what? It's incredibly annoying, hopefully it starts working normally soon.

I see search results for templates right here, is that what you're looking for? You can also find templates by using Special:AllPages. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 17:36 UTC, Sat, 14 July 2012
I meant in edit mode, when you click "Add other templates". Instead of giving me templates, it gives me normal search results. I should of been more specific, sorry. Zicoihno (Talk to Me) 17:41, July 14, 2012 (UTC)
Yikes, you're right, I was able to reproduce this. -> Visual Editor -> "Add other templates" -> search for "Team" and wait for the dropdown list to populate -> Bug: those results are from the main namespace, not the Template namespace. I'd report this to Special:Contact/bug with a detailed description. In the meantime, you'll have to use another way adding templates. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 17:58 UTC, Sat, 14 July 2012
Thank you. I'll report it right away. Zicoihno (Talk to Me) 18:06, July 14, 2012 (UTC)
