#44073 new feature request

Add functionality to search plugin with double quoted keyword

Is this possible to add a feature where plugins could be searched on Add New Plugin page either with:

  • More than one keyword wrapped inside double quotes. Example: "my plugin"


  • Add a filter like Match Whole Phrase (in existing filter dropdown)

In either case, it would be much easier to locate the desired plugin as the result will become more filtered and less items would appear on screen. This can avoid scrolling through "relevant results".
