Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

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? –  jmfsg 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 –  jmfsg 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.
