Plugin searchbar undiscoverable

It took me 2 weeks to finally discover the SEARCH BAR for the Community Plugins. I kept landing on the page, wondering how to search. I never saw it in the toolbar.

The color is faded grey in a black toolbar. It is barely visible. Not discoverable.


  1. give the search bar a white background. Do not include hint text (makes it less discoverable; confused as button instead of input).
  2. include search on the page content itself, near the filters to be in proximity to content it is filtering.

this is a decent video on search UX:
