    I know this idea forum is probably only for core WordPress suggestions but I have no idea where else to suggestio it and it does very much tie into WordPress' core user experience.

    A better plugin search and filtering is needed. the fact that a 3 year old abandoned plugin that hasn't been updated in years comes up first in search for some keyword doesn't make sense. sort by version compatibility, latest updated, highest rating, etc' would be amazing.

    A plugin with no updates for two years should not show up on any search for plugins, and yes, this is for core suggestions only.

    We know the search sucks, but given the complexity of what it's search, it's actually pretty good for non-google things. It's being worked on but requires some major back end changes to data structure.
