A way to search for an addon for a mod (MC)

Currently there is a way to look for an addon for some mods as a searching tag.
My idea is to add a functionality to search for every mod.
This will be a good addition because currently to search for addon you need to search the name of the mod, which wont show all the result, or search in google, which wont show non popular mods.

    I absolutely love this idea. For one thing, there REALLY needs to be somewhere that mod requirements are shown. In the requirements list, where one Curseforge mod lists another Curseforge mod as a requirement, there should be a link there to the other Curseforge mod. Where the mod requirement is not uploaded to curseforge, it could be an html link with a notice before leaving Curseforge that it is an external site.

    Alternatively, a non-link naming the creator and the type of website (for Sims this could be The Sims Resource, Mod the Sims, Patreon, and so on.) For instance, I haven't seen Madlen on here, usually Madlen shoes for The Sims, are on the Sims Resource or Patreon. So for instance, the information for required items might show Madlen (The Sims Resource). Most Sims modders prefer you visit their website directly anyway.

    There currently doesn't appear to be a way to search specific addons. There is a search bar, but it doesn't seem to work?

    Thanks - we will research this more.

    We will see if this complies to Microsoft and Mojang requirements, and if so research implementation.
