WordPress File Search

Description

Simple searching of WordPress files.

Often you might be working with a WordPress theme/plugin/core files that you didn’t create.
You want to overwrite a function in your child theme, you don’t know where it’s located in the parent theme or what it does.

I made this plugin just to speed up the process of finding strings hidden in themes mainly. This allows you to track down those functions etc, that text that just seems hidden.
