Look at The navigation bar on
the left hand side.

That would be neat. However, I have never seen that done in MediaWiki.
It might, however, be possible. If you find a solution, let me know.

There are no pages that contain the word NEO, that is why you get no results.

10 pages that contain the word 'warning'.
