#12696 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Add ordering support to plugins_api() when filtered on tag or search term

It would be awesome if you could pass an ordering parameter to plugins_api() that would allow you to return a list of filtered plugins in a specific order.

I'd love to be able to use the API to return a list of the most popular / newest / recently updated plugins on the repo that contain the tag "buddypress".

Something like this would be awesome:

$plugins = plugins_api( 'query_plugins', array( 'tag' => 'buddypress', 'page' => 1, 'order' => 'popular' );

Even better, also allow search filtering:

$plugins = plugins_api( 'query_plugins', array( 'tag' => 'buddypress', 'search' => 'album', 'page' => 1, 'order' => 'popular' );

I'd be happy to implement this if I can get access to the API source on WordPress.org.

Andy, you should have access to the API via your wporgdev sandbox.

This wouldn't be terribly difficult to add to the API, but it's pointless until core supports doing it there and is able to request the ordering. So, moving to the plugins component.

Are there orderings other that popularity that would be useful? Which are most important?

@tellyworth It would be pretty useful to be able to order by date.

See #30321: Ordering favorite plugins in alphabetical order would be very useful.
