I'd expect that the search phrase "Plugin Name" produced a lot more of results:

enter image description here

If we try to restrict by answers, "Plugin Name" is:a, there are even less results: 17.

Why is that? My intention was to write in an Answer: "look how many examples of custom (wpse crafted) plugins you can find in our site", only to find out that it seems impossible.

  • Something like "plugin name:" is:answer, perhaps?

  • Donnow what happened, I was sure having tried with the colon too... We can shorten the search with is:a and is:q.

There is (little) known bug in the search engine: you must include the colons.

A search for code:"Plugin Name:" yields 699 results.
A search for just "Plugin Name:" yields 704 results.

    Oh, I could swear I tried with the colon... a little bug on my side too :) Wasn't aware of the code: selector, thanks!
