On, the search box can only find projects in the current tab (Waiting by default).

It should be able to find any project, regardless of the tab it's on.

Also, on, the current results are:

  • Plugins - rtMedia for WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress (42 waiting/fuzzy strings)
  • Plugins - bbPress Advanced Statistics (24 waiting/fuzzy strings)
  • Plugins - GD bbPress Attachments (3 waiting/fuzzy strings)
  • Plugins - Buddy-bbPress Support Topic (2 waiting/fuzzy strings)
  • Plugins - Search for WordPress/WooCommerce/bbPress that never gets stuck - WPSOLR (2 waiting/fuzzy strings)
  • Plugins - bbPress (1 waiting/fuzzy strings)

It's technically correct, as the default sorting is "Waiting + Fuzzy (Most first)", but a bit unexpected. If there's a direct match for a project name, I would expect for it to be the first result.

And on, bbPress itself is on the second page, which is even more confusing.

Would just searching against the existing plugins ES index help here? Could even just use the API core uses for plugin search.

We don't have a themes index yet, but presumably we eventually will.

  • Milestone Improved Search deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

To maintain the overall search performance the limit to the selected tab is intended. Closing this as wontfix.

Improving the relevance should be handled in #4001.
