#1075 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Log search queries from the theme and plugin API

Reported by: grapplerulrich Owned by: dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: API Keywords:


It would be useful if the API requests to WordPress.org would be tracked so that we can see what plugin and theme searches are being done and what tags are used to search for themes.

This would be helpful for the theme review team to work out what other tags would be useful for people.

This is possible, but raises issues of privacy and potentially enables spammy behaviour. Definitely something we should explore in future, but needs a more specific (and narrower) proposal.

  • Summary changed from Log the theme and plugin API requests to Log search queries from the theme and plugin API

Maybe I should add the reason why the search queries could be useful. Themes can currently add tags to make their theme to show support for certain features. The theme review team was interested in what type of searches were being made to improve on the existing tags.

This information is currently being tracked on WordPress.org.

but needs a more specific (and narrower) proposal.

I have changed the title of the issue to be more specific. I am not sure if we can get more specific then that.
