#161 closed enhancement (invalid)

Search in Plugin Directory ignores tags

Reported by: Feedweb Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: low
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


Migrating from #wp24835:

Searching http://wordpress.org/plugins/ retrieves only the plugins having the keyword(s) in their title. The plugins having specified keyword in their headline, description or tags are ignored.

For example, our plugin (Feedweb) has tags "rating", "widget", and "rating widget", but it is not included in the search results of "rating widget".

Please fix.

Search actually searches more than just title. Tags do count, as does the main description of the plugin. Title gets a slight boost, but yes it does search tags too.
