Create a sort option in WikiDiscover to allow for sorting all wikis, regardless of category
Open, LowPublic

Description

Request: Related to T6575 and T6576, I'd really like a drop-down sort option, or even a checkbox, really, to "display all wikis," as currently, we can only sort wikis by a specific category or the uncategorised category.

All wikis are displayed by default, unless you select the submit button to search.

Per my above response

@Universal_Omega Perhaps I didn't articulate the use case clear enough, but that's not the case. There's still a need for this, so reopening. Feel free to triage as "low" or "stalled," and I'll try articulate more clearly what I mean

@Dmehus can you please try to give more detail what you mean? They way you describe this task takes it seem like what I said above, and is a bit unclear.

@Universal_Omega As I'm remembering, I did tell you on Discord, and you thought it was likely doable, if I'm remembering correctly, but basically like a filter, that includes all wikis, not just those as "uncategorised."

Make it either a separate drop-down box or a tickbox. When it's checked, category drop-down cannot be selected. Can potentially add other filter drop-downs for deleted wikis, inactive wikis, etc., that includes only those filtered wikis and excludes all others. Currently, you have sort by column, and this is rather sub-optimal.

Longer term, I'd like to add transclusion of the Special:WikiDiscover special page, so this can be transcluded onto actual pages, depending on drop-down filter options set.

This screenshot may help.

Thanks.
