When I joined this forum in August 2018, the OHM search function had various ways to search an add-on. Currently, only the search by add-on and category (via browse function) is available. I want the nostalgic search function back with further improvements. I also want to suppress the browse function, since such function should be integrated on the search function.

Search is indeed an area I haven't given much love during the redevelopment. I'm definitely going to invest some time in the next phase of development to improve how it currently works.

The old system used an engine called Sphinx, which is a bit of a pain to get working. I have been considering implementing Elasticsearch, but I'm a little concerned about the resource requirements it'll want.

Open to suggestions for improvement.
