Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I tried a search, but I get answers also in the results.
I'd like to search only questions.

I tried: wiki:1 question:1 (shot in the dark) but it didn't work, I still get answers in the results.

In contrast, perhaps a way to search only answers would be useful too

So I propose the question and answer search operator to combine with the rest

Near as I can tell, the answers to the question fretje links to effectively answer this. – Shog9 Feb 9 '10 at 16:45
    
@Shog, @fretje, how could you search for questions that are wiki, excluding answers, using the info on that link? – juan Feb 9 '10 at 17:52

@Dow: You're right, I now understand what exactly you want, and I think it's already possible (see my answer). – fretje Feb 9 '10 at 18:19
    
Ah, I see what you mean. Was thinking of the wiki:1 answers:1 search, but this is a bit different - fretje's answer here seems like a solid solution though. – Shog9 Feb 9 '10 at 19:12
    
@Shog, @fre, thanks... sorry if I wasn't clear enough – juan Feb 9 '10 at 19:46

You can use

wiki:1 views:1 apples oranges 

Then the search results will only return questions which contain apples or oranges (answers don't have views).

The correct way to do this now is wiki:yes (or wiki:1) and is:question, like this.
