A new template for finding articles
Template:Find is a new template made using the Simple Forms extension to make a more sophisticated search form for the site. The new search form works like usual but has extra buttons for sending the query to Wikipedia or Google, instead of just the usual go and full-text-search buttons. Also if the go button is used and the search query contains one or more "=" characters, it will be treated as a DPL query allowing searching for articles by regular expression, category, template-use and much more.
Here's a couple of useful query examples:
category=Foo (list all articles in Category:Foo)
uses=News|ordermethod=firstedit (list all articles using Template:News ordered by their creation date)
createdby=Foo (list all articles created by User:Foo)
