When searching it gets cluttered real quick when wallpapers and various multimedia fill up the results. Please add the ability to hide these.

For eg. I just searched for "Sunshine" (https://github.com/LizardByte/Sunshine/) and the results were just hundreds of wallpapers.

You can use the categories at the left for this, isn't it enough?
Comment 2 saunders 2022-11-01 21:51:02 UTC
If I knew what category it was put under then yes, but doesn't that defeat the point of searching a little bit?
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2022-11-02 18:29:03 UTC
No, because we no longer have an "All Applications" category you can navigate to to limit the search to just apps.

Pushed by ngraham into branch 'master'.

Re-add the "All Applications" category

This also lets people limit a search to just apps by searching while on
this page.
