#4405 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Open/resolved threads significant but not shown in search results

Description

The number of resolved threads is considered significant for search result ranking, but not shown in search results.

The current search results show:

  • Author.
  • Active installs.
  • Tested with version.

I would suggest adding the number of open/resolved support threads as well.

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion close added

There's only so much room for displaying such data, adding support threads to the existing UI would start to really clutter it with information most people don't really care for (IMHO).

The search results are already influenced by support threads (Less responses? Ranked lower).

Perhaps this would be better achieved through a filtering UI: #2753

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

I'm going to close this as wontfix for now as it's unlikely we'll add this data point to the search results.

It's probably worth continuing the discussion in #4404 on how to best weight search results by this data point.
