    Jarvis looks cool, but it doesn't do a full code text search. Any suggestions on plugins that will do that? For instance, I want to search on "ehw" because that something I put on my custom classes, and I want to find all my custom class implementations in HTML. But, the "Editor" section of the Appearance menu doesn't list any files with that string, though it appears on my website. What plugin will do a full WordPress file text search? I know Sublime Text has this function, but I'd like a WP solution that doesn't migrating files to peek at them. #fullTextSearch #wordpress #plugin #gotcha

    DomDom, Yes. Jarvis DOES still work. I DO have to correct one part of this video's description. I created this plugin. The concept and functionality were created By Dave Everett while working at Web Development Group. Additional code contributions were from Joan Piedra and Kurtis Shaner.
