Completely remove the "score" element from the GUI #182
Item's score in the results list adds no functional value and is more of a geek thing. It has been implemented initially in very early versions for debug purpose and kept that way since then.

I really don't understand why you want to remove the score? It was not asked by any users. It can also be hidden. I'm using it to see if I can move an entry to the top of the list. So I'm always displaying the score.
The scoring algorithm is what differentiate your application from all the others. I've showed you that in some cases it is not optimal. You should provide a config files to tweak the scoring and at the very least an clear explanation of the choice you are making in the scoring.
By the way your theming solution is really nice. I can nearly change any font, colors and display features in the application. Your config files are really well done. Very clever.
So keep up the good work.
What do you mean?
It's only about the GUI here (what's displayed). That won't change the search behavior in any way.
Unrelated topic but agreed, the next release will try to improve that in some cases without impacting those who already feel OK with it. For example, full matches will get some steroids.
Thanks for the nice feedback!
