#4920 closed defect (fixed)

Themes Search: Prioritize theme search with exact title match

Reported by: Nikschavan Owned by: dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Theme Directory Keywords:


The themes search engine is somehow not prioritizing exact march key phrase. In the case below, the preference is given to another item which has extra characters at the end.

Try searching "Astra". "Astral" comes first and then "Astra".

There is no "themes search engine". This uses the default WordPress core search system. You can bring up issues with it in core.trac.

In 9363:

Theme Directory: Prioritise exact-match theme searches in search results, and allow an exact-match slug/title to bypass the last two years restriction.

Fixes #2939, #4920.
