Elgg version: 1.7

This is a patch that improves search capabilities of plugin repository. Plugins can be sorted by number of downloads and number of recomendations now.

The patch doesn't support sorting searches, but sorting category listings. Before deploying a sorting capability we need to handle both. This requires some additional code in the plugin search hook.

Ideally, we will support:

  • Searching (free text over the title, description, and metadata)
  • Filtering (by category, Elgg version)
  • Sorting (newest, most downloads, recommendations)

Perhaps the next step should be looking at how other sites implement this at the UI layer. As an example, this is how Nike does it for its shoes: [http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/?l=shop,pwp,c-1+100701/hf-50144+12001&cp=USNS_KW_0611081618#l=shop,pwp,c-1+100701/hf-4294966954+10002+12001/ipp-48/pn-1 site].
