#2425 closed defect (fixed)

New Plugin Search Mostly Broken for Multi-Lingual

Reported by: gibrown Owned by: tellyworth
Milestone: Plugin Directory v3.0 Priority: high
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: has-patch


The last fix in #1692 somewhat broke searching the directory in other languages.

The prior search also needed some improvements to better balance matching in the translated languages vs matching the english fields as a backup.

@SergeyBiryukov thanks for the great example. Found a bug on the indexing side with this when only some of the plugin's content is translated. Once the above patch is merged the search for that plugin should work now.
