It seems very difficult to search pages in wikia. I have two problems in particular:
- when you search a term, you suppose pages that contain that term in their page title should be listed before the other results. This is not actually true. For example, if I search "stat" in The Grinns Tale Wiki, page "Health (stat)" is the 106th result, and it's the earliest listed page that contains "stat" in its title
- By default if you select to search "everything", wikia searches in every namespace, mediawiki and template included. I think normal normal users could be interested to search "everything", with the exception of these namespaces. I think a "custom" link that allow you to select namespaces, as wikipedia does, could be useful.
