#1709 closed enhancement (fixed)

Plugin Search Results - Plugin Card Height

Description

I have a minor enhancement suggestion for the existing / new plugin directory search results screen.

Currently the "Plugin Cards" are different heights (due to the content).
I'd like to suggest using Flexbox (with maybe a JS match height fallback) to align all the cards.

I'm currently exploring new design styles around the card view of the plugins. The different heights have bothered me too. One idea is to eliminate the hard bordered cards, and truncate the description text. But 'what' we display and 'how' we display are important.

This is a lot better in the new/beta directory (thanks @mapk!). I think it's good enough to call it fixed, but please reopen if you have other ideas for improvements. (One thing to keep in mind is translations, where string size could vary considerably.)
