    Hi,

    please change the way the search works...

    if I search for essentials, vault etc. I don't want to click through 10 pages of messages or other plugins till I find the plugin.

    search should put plugins with the search term in the name first, afterwards the rest.

    It is easier to find the plugin via google than with the build in search.

    well when I'm on dev.bukkit why should I go to a different page.

    also on that matter... why not just search BOTH sites at the same time on plugins.bukkit.org?

    If you just want to search server mods, then search from the server mods page filter ;)

    Now there's a good example of a poor UI:
    • Go to server mods
    • See a bar with "Server Mods" on the left, and a search box on the left - looks good so far...
    • Enter your search and curse (haha) as the global search is used instead of searching server mods
    • Curse again as you realise the search button is hidden inside the closed-by-default "Filters" box, which although it has a padlock to keep it open, never remembers that between browser sessions (haven't these people ever heard of cookies?)

    I agree, the "Server Mods" search should not include messages by default. Even the word "Filters" is very non-user-friendly. How about just "Search"?

    Also, the World Generators category seems entirely broken (2 pages of plugins that don't appear to have anything to do with generation):

    http://plugins.bukkit.org/curseforge/#ti=&ta=world-generators&au=&pno=0

    The "Subscription" button is also not terribly obvious as to what it does (something incredibly useful and even important --see sig). I'm left thinking about paying for magazines...

    Op is right, so is desht. You have to search through, or search something random then hit server-mods then type in the plugin. :p
