@otto42: Was there ever any resolution to the issue of plugin search for exact name matches? Search for “contact form 7″ and it’s the 14th result. Is there any way we can improve that for exact text matches?

Errr, no, when I search for “contact form 7″, it comes up as the first result.
Exact name searches get bumped to the top. I put that code in a while back.
piggy backing onto this, can the theme search be looked at as well? eg.
The theme of that name is last in the list.
Sorry, wasn’t clear. This is when searching via wp-admin. Is it using a different search?
Probably. I don’t know how the core searcher works. I’ll look at it.
Yes, when you search from WP-admin I get the same results.
Fixed. The exact match search result is now being applied in both cases instead of just the one.
Great work Otto.
Exactly! I get the same results in both cases!
and there is something wrong with “last updated” date ; I updated my plugin on 30-1-2011 ,for example, but in plugin page “last updated date” is 2010-12-4 …… what’s wrong with it ? See it : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/persian-world/
Is there any way to increase the weighting of “relevancy” when sort by is set to “most popular”?
For example searching for “facebook images” Yields #2-4 as: Fast Secure Contact Form, WPTouch & SexyBookmarks.
