Description

I just searched "fooplugins" to check on our new WP Repo Icons and see that the results for FooBox and SocialWiggle are showing emails to my partner bradvin from long ago when these plugins were first submitted to the repo.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to WordPress.org
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Was due to a recent change, now reverted. Thanks for the report.

For future reference (and no problem that you didn't know this), the proper place for WordPress.org issues is https://meta.trac.wordpress.org.

Thanks for the quick info and the direction to the proper .org Trac submission, I appreciate it:)

The issue was actually a bit more complex than a revert, however it has now been fixed for real. The search results pages should be showing the short-description once again. However, the search results may be different than expected, because those saved emails are no longer being considered in the search system. Keywords in them will not cause a search result to appear.

  • Component changed from Plugins to WordPress.org site

This was specifically a WordPress.org thing, so the component for it should more properly be this. Plugins in core and the results to the plugins API were not affected at all. This was purely a display issue on .org.

Good to know. As a note, I just searched "fooplugins" again and our two most popular plugins are not in the results listing. FooBox and FooGallery. Both are authored by bradvin and fooplugins.

Author names aren't part of the search fields at present. It's searching the text in your readme.txt file, for the most part. And it probably ignores the links, considering the text that is displayed is generally most important.

Thanks, I forgot we still have this component here.
