Better New Plugin Filtering

Description

Currently trying to sort through available plugins by searching is quite laborious since there is no way to filter out things you don't want - such as plugins that haven't been tested with your version, haven't been updated in 100+ days, have a really low rating, etc. I'm constantly surprised at how many plugins i have to go through before i can even find one that is compatible with at least WP two versions ago much less the current one.

You should be able to filter on: Tested with current version, Rating of X+, Download at least XX, and so on to make it easier to find something you want.

And then column sorting after then by date added, date updated, rating, etc.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to WordPress.org

An even better approach would be if the search results were ordered automatically by all these criteria.

Anyway, this seems like a .org thing.

The real need is the Add Plugin area of the wordpress installation though. I agree better sorting at the beginning would be recommended.

just search in google for the best plugin and the work is done, why to make it more complicated?

Because Google is not really good at determining how up to date something is.
