The Editor Search plugin adds searching and ‘go to line number’ functionality to the WordPress theme/plugin editors built-in to your admin area. Once the plugin is installed and activated, you’ll notice two new input boxes above the main textarea to allow you to easily search below.

version 1.3 / 2005-06-07
Word searching now wraps in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. I also made a small usability improvement (I think) in this version, when you click in one of the input boxes, the other will clear. Now you won’t be searching for ‘Firefox’ and still have the line number 5 in your other entry box. It was annoying me so I fixed that.
version 1.2 / 2005-06-01
After much frustration, I’m pleased to announce that Editor Search now works in Internet Explorer 6.0. IE appears to automatically scroll the textarea to the proper position when I move the cursor, so that should be perfectly accurate, however the slight deviation from the proper position still occurs in Firefox, hoping to minimize/eliminate that in 1.4 or 1.5. One minor difference in IE is that word searching doesn’t currently wrap when you reach the end, I should be fixing that in 1.3.
version 1.1 / 2005-05-15
The only noticable change is the addition of form tags around the input boxes to facilitate hitting the enter/return key after typing in your search phrase or line number. In the background, the code added to the editor pages should now be Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
version 1.0 / 2005-05-04
The plugin attempts to scroll your textarea to the proper location so you can see the word it found (or line number it put you on), however it isn’t entirely accurate at this point. I’m pretty sure it’s because of lines wrapping and I’m working on a new scrollToCursor routine, but I wanted to get this out there to start with.
