 Currently, searching for a Plugin via the WP Admin, to add a new plugin,
 is not up to scratch.

 For example, if you search "Breadcrumb Nav XT" you won't get any results.

 However, if you search "Breadcrumb NavXT" you will get the plugin you were
 looking for.

 Can we see some improvements made to this, so it is easier for users to
 find related plugins similar to what they're searching, rather than


 - Easier to find a desired plugin
 - More plugins are returned in the results, shows off more of what is
 possible with WordPress


 - None
