Bloated WordPress Plugin directory

  1. kallumamaji

    It seems that wordpress plugin directory list many of plugins twice (or may be more). this makes it slightly time consuming and also doesnt look nice.

    here are example from search (as on today, sort by relevence)

    WordPress Dashboard Twitter , this plugin is listed on
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php/page/3?q=twitter&sort= at first position

    and on http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php/page/2?q=twitter&sort= at second last position.

    similarly "Simple Twitter Data" listed twice on 3rd and 4th page using same search.

    A little improvement in directory search result would enhance user esperience

    This is not a core WordPress code suggestion (again). Sense a theme here? ;) This is also a duplicate idea.

    The plugin directory is being cleaned up. Any plugin not updated in a year will be dropped from all search results. Further optimization is on the radar.
