What’s Addendio?

Addendio is a search engine for plugins and themes. We spent countless hours looking for plugins and themes so we decided to come up with our own solution to see if we could improve the process and the experience.

Why Plugins cannot be filtered based on downloads?

It’s a conscious decision not to include downloads as a filter for plugins. Quick explanation: WordPress recently introduced a new metric regarding the amount of active installations for plugins.

Downloads are heavily influenced by the amount of releases made and they don’t really indicate if the plugin is widely used or not. Actually in some cases a high number of downloads can be a bad indicator. Take the case of a plugin with a security breach. All installations need to be updated, downloads numbers go up, but is that good? No really…
