Well, I hope many of you have been using the WordPress plugin directory. It’s a grand location where you can find endless plugin for your WordPress blog.

But sometimes you don’t exactly get what you search for, but according to mdawaffe on WordPress, they have implemented a new open source MySQL text search engine. Well go on, test it out.

    The new search upgrade is a huge improvement. Now when you search for a plugin you get relevant results instead of a list of the popular plugins and then slighly related plugins.

    I am just surprised that it took them so long considering that they just only recently enabled plugin installation/search through the WP dashboard.

      Right, but looks like the newly open source MySQL text search will be improved even more once it can search author names and tags.
