How to search the VEL without searching the extensions not on the vel?

The recent migration of vel.joomla.org into extensions.joomla.org lost the previous listing options, or is the migration still not finished?

@Toivo
The listing options are from the top menu.

@mandville
I mean if I want to check if an extension is on either the live or resolved list ... l put the extension in the search box and get a list of occurances of it in the vel not the listing in the extensions.

@Webdongle: like you, I'm trying (and failing) to get my head around this. From your last post I assume, when you wrote "the listing options are from the top menu", that you were referring to the "title filter" input box?

I've made a few assumptions about your question but there's still one word I'm unsure about; the word is the last word in the sentence I quoted: "extensions".

Are you referring to the JED? Are you asking if, for example, an extension is listed in the VEL as something that's been reported as fishy or known to cause problems, there should be a corresponding alert mechanism in the JED for that same extension? Is that what you're asking about?

Without naming/shaming any extensions that are on the VEL "active list", I looked at the first listed items and then used Google to see whether those extensions were still listed on the JED. It would appear that, in the few cases I examine, the extensions have been de-listed.

Aside from the observing an overall clunkiness with the interface, the VEL seems to be working OK. Perhaps I've drawn the wrong assumptions about the problem we're discussing?

In any case, the option that previously allowed us to search both active and already resolved vulnerable extensions in one go from vel.joomla.org is now gone.

search matrix facility is still being discussed as to the best way to implement it for VEL items only. there are the search boxes above each listing in live and resolved

And putting an extension name in those show results from all of JED including extensions that are not in the VEL. e.g. search jce and you get

Yes that search box. put jce in it and see it shows all the extensions that relate to jce. We need results for only the VEL not the whole of JED.
