New Plugin not coming up in Search results (3 posts)

    Hi, we recently released a new plugin for blog translation: the 'GTS Translation' plugin. The plugin is not coming up in search results from within the WP admin panel (when you click 'Add New' plugin and then do a term search). For example: if I do a term search for 'GTS', 'GTS translation' or 'translation' the GTS plugin does not come up at all. It only comes up when I do a tag search.

    I think the reason may be that WP recently moved the plugin to a new URL. Since then there have been no downloads and I am afraid that the search issue may be the reason.

    Thanks for you help in this.

    FWIW, it looks as though the issue has to do with de-pluralization of search terms. Searching for "gts" yields search results topped with plugins with "gt" in the title. I'd wager that there's a disconnect between how keywords are processed when generating the search index and at search time that effectively makes this plugin unreachable.
