Feature request: Extended search for Plugin Directory on wordpress.org (2 posts)

    Currently there are +7400 plugins and searching for a specific plugin can only be done by either choosing a broad category like "most popular" OR entering a search keyword in the search field.

    Would be very helpful if there was an advanced search that would allow more precise searching.

    + dropdown category ("most recent","most popular",...)
    + dropdown order by ("plugin name", "most downloaded")
    + search input field

    Yes! this is great idea and I think of this often.

    I think it would be great to see two additional columns within the WordPress Admin plugin search results:

    1. Last Updated
    2. Times Downloaded

    IHO the star ratings are wasted space when one plugin has a 3.5 rating at 100,000 downloads but another has a 5.0 rating at 1000 downloads.

    Has this been specifically requested? I could't find anything on it in the forums...
