Practice Pattern/Workflow "Keywording"
|Practice Pattern Domain||KIM|
Practice Pattern/Workflow "Keywording" makes keywords the simplest1 interface (among others) between the users'/searchers' and the authors' language when working with a knowledge base.
"Select a or search by a keyword to start interacting with your knowledge base"
Practice Pattern/Workflow "Keywording" will substantially change when adding Elasticsearch by mid-2016. That's why these explanations are rudimentary for the time being.
Thanks to Discuss UseCase "Manage MediaWiki-centric enterprise knowledge management" keywords are the only2 content page titles which are "autocompleted" by MediaWiki's built-in search.
In the course of her very first key strokes, this behaviour effectively directs the user's/searcher's focus to the keywords that authors defined as potentially most effective entry points.
However, note that by default autocompletion is performed only on the first word of a statement. FLAW
- Principle "Intuitive human-computer interaction"
- Except for the term characters C-o-m-p-o-n-e-n-t-, which means that keywords beginning with C-o-m-p-o-n-e-n-t- will not be autocompleted usefully, but will only show up upon pressing Enter. FLAW
