Where did the search field in Community go?

After your last update, the community page no longer has a search / filter input field.
That makes me having to use Google to find plugins. Why did you remove it?

And why can’t I add a screenshot in this product feedback

You need to click your profile switcher at the top left and then select Community. I have no idea why it’s hidden so well, I agree it’s super inconvenient.

I spotted that change pretty quick. But once you open the Community page in Figma, the search field is gone. I don’t see it - you can only filter by category.
There is also no selection for if you want to see Figma files or Plugins (in the top)

The same search field that is used for searching for files in your workspace gets repurposed for community search when you open it. It’s at the right of that account switcher menu.

Are you talking about this field?

Yeah, I didn’t see it. The search field, if I remember correctly, was by the filter tags.
Now that I know where it is, I’ll use it. But for better user experience it should be easier to spot.

PS. How did you manage to add a picture to your reply?

You can drag & drop it, paste it from clipboard, or use this button:

I agree that it should be easier to spot… like Dribbble’s one in my opinion:

But since I don’t use it frequently, it’s not a big deal for me.

Agreed. The search bar is pretty undiscoverable given the importance of the task on the page—you’re either browsing or searching.

Open to any improvements. The current implementation is easy to miss.
