A plugin to help navigate the WordPress plugin directory by filtering the results based on ratings and other criteria.

== Description ==

After years of searching through thousands of WordPress plugins, trying to sort out the 5-star from the 1-star listings, those that were not tested on the most recent version of WordPress and other filters,  I decided it was time to make my plugin search a bit easier.    Since the WordPress plugin manager already has a way to retrieve both basic and detailed plugin information directly to my WordPress site admin panel, I figured there must be a way to do some more intelligent filtering of plugin data when doing my searches.

Turns out there is a way.    And this is my first stab at it.   If enough people are interested in the plugin I'll even add more advanced features like listing and filtering based on number of downloads, reviews, and more.

For now, here is the basic feature set I find useful in filtering out my lists.

Current plugin filtering options include:

* Minimum Rating : Do not show plugins with ratings below this value. 60 = 3 stars, 100 = 5 stars.
* Maximum Rating : Do not show plugins with ratings above this value. 60 = 3 stars, 100 = 5 stars.
* Minimum Number of Ratings :  Do not show plugins with fewer than this number of ratings. Default: 2.
* Minimum Tested Version : Do not show plugins that were not tested on this version of WordPress or higher. Default: 3.3.
