Wikipedia language and a question

Hi

could you tell me which search string should I put in Look & Feel->Book Details to search on Wikipedia Italy?

And, why if I search, for example Woody Allen, a page opens with a Woody Allen who is not the actor, how can I always make the page open with all the existing Woody Allen?
Thank you

Search for "Woody Allen actor"

The search for Wikipedia is:

Code:
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search={author}
Changing the language in the URL should be enough:

Code:
https://it.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=
For the other part, this is a search. You would need to use more a direct link to the author page. But, calibre encodes the value for a search and that probably won't work with a Wikipedia page.
