Plugin search filters

    We need basic search filters for plugins so I can look at plugins compatible with my version of WordPress. There are many plugins that only support until WP2.8 and it is hard to find plugins for some areas out of the search list.

    +1 to that!

    Plugin search is painful at best. Being able to filter by WP version compatibility would make it a lot less frustrating. Even just showing compatibility info in a separate column in the search results table would be a substantial improvement.

    Having to click on individual results... and wait for the lightbox to load... only to find out that a plugin isn't even compatible... then move your mouse to click the "X" and close the box... and wait for it to close... just so you can hunt through the endless list for another possible plugin and go through the entire drill all over again...

    Yeah. That's not just crazy SLOW... it's crazy non-ergonomic, too.

    Please fix this. Pretty please? Thanks for listening.

    I agree, searching for plugins would be much easier and faster this way!

    I absolutely agree!

    As an experienced developer, new to WP, the lack of a quality search, sort, filter or meaningful at a glance detail struck me as huge WTF?

    What am I supposed to do with the large number of plugins I have on my sites when a new version of WP is released?

    lbergren has it right
    "That's not just crazy SLOW... it's crazy non-ergonomic, too."

    What would be really great, in addition to cleaning up Extend Plugin search, sort, filter, display, would be for WP Update notices within Admin Panel to notify me and identify installed plugins that have not been tested with the new version.

    Any way, thanks for listening!
