/********* Notes about using Wikipedia's API ******************** -Use format=jsonfm when debugging (display is human friendly) -Specify formatversion=2 to get json format responses in a cleaner format -Cannot use list=search and prop=info in same API call -Note: list=search&srsearch='search text' and generator=search&gsrsearch='search text' give similar values (however gsrsearch is sorted by pageid value) -prop=info&inprop=url provides links -gsrsearch='search text' provides list of titles with 'search text' in them -callback=? is used for a JSONP call since otherwise request wasn't being loaded -continue= is going to return continue=|| if more results can be loaded -gsroffset='number' use to continue paging -unfortunately setting gsroffset='number' won't necessarily produce the same query each time on page reload -gsrprop=snippet not producing intended output, hence the work around was to use prop=extract (needs exintro initialized, otherwise exlimit=max is too large a request) *****************************************************************/
