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.

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
