This article is about the feature on the website. For the Scratch Modification of the same name, see Explore (Scratch Modification).
Exploring all projects

The explore feature allows users to find projects or studios that they might be interested in.

Categories

There are 8 views, each showing different projects. Most are simply a tag view.

It is currently unknown how the page decides how many projects to show.

All

This view shows "all" projects or studios, though it is unknown exactly what that means.

Animations

This view shows projects tagged with "Animations". The exact purpose of the studio view is unknown, though it is possible it displays studios with projects in the project view.

Art

This view shows projects tagged with "Art". The exact purpose of the studio view is unknown, though it is possible it displays studios with projects in the project view.

Games

This view shows projects tagged with "Games". The exact purpose of the studio view is unknown, though it is possible it displays studios with projects in the project view.

Music

This view shows projects tagged with "Music". The exact purpose of the studio view is unknown, though it is possible it displays studios with projects in the project view.

Story

This view shows projects tagged with "Stories". The exact purpose of the studio view is unknown, though it is possible it displays studios with projects in the project view.

Tag

On the 27th of September 2013[1] an update was made that added the option to search for a project by its tag. Before this was added some people campaigned for this feature because it could give more of a use to tags.[2] On July 8th, 2016, the explore page was updated so that you can no longer search by tag. Now, you can search for a tag in the Search Bar.

Studio Search

Adjacent to the "Projects" button, there is a button labeled "Studios" which, when clicked, will change the search for projects or users to a search for studios. The same rules apply considering the Tag, Art, Animations filters etc. You will just be searching for studios under those tags instead of projects.

Sort By Filter

Archive.png This article or section documents a feature not included in the current version of Scratch (2.0). It is only useful from a historical perspective.

Below is an image showing the Sort By drop down box. In order to sort your results by time periods, simply click the button next to "Sort by:" and another option should appear (in this case, it is "This month"). By clicking "This month" all the projects from this month will appear, the same rule applies for "This week" except only projects or studios created this week shall appear.
