[Mediawiki-l] Searching

Hi all,

I am interested in changing up the search -> creation page
functionality of my personal mediawiki install.  I have added a table
into the my wiki DB that I would like to check against before allowing
users to add pages to the wiki.  For example, let's say I was making a
nintendo game wiki , and had a table with all of the games nintendo
ever created.  I would like users to only be able to add and edit a
page that matched up with the title of the game that resides in the db
table.  I would like a search to return close matches (LIKE) and only
allow users to select one of the options returned.  This would of
course have to also manage the user manually entering a create string
in the URL.

For those much more knowledgeable please point me in the right
direction for the cleanest way of doing this.

Thanks in advance for the help.

- Chris
