A Better WordPress Plugin Search Engine

Search WordPress PluginsIf you are a WordPress developer or a WordPress user you’ve spent time looking for plugins. We are familiar with the Plugin Directory at WordPress.org, the go-to directory for free WordPress plugins.

    Thanks Carma, this is a really nice tutorial. I’m bad at doing videos and stuff like that. Really glad you like the website. If you have any suggestions about how to improve the site, please let me know. 🙂

    And yes, the difference between “newest” and “freshest” is “newly added” versus “recently updated”. The “fresh” list includes new and updated plugins but the “new” list only includes new plugins.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome collection of best search plugins for WordPress. I have installed the free Relevanssi and built the index. But the search is still the default WordPress search. Is there anything else that has to be done?
