I spent hours looking for 1 line of code. Finally gave in and downloaded this plugin and it found what I was looking for right away. Highly recommend!

Can't work in 6.1.1

I have got the below error in search:

SyntaxError: Unexpected token '<', " "… is not valid JSON

How can I do to fix?

Perfect, What I was looking For.

Very Helpful for myself.

Doesn't work anymore

Before wordpress 6.0 had no problems to search strings, now you have to repeat search two times and "Restore last search" to show results if there is any. Please fix it, it was one of the most useful plugins.

Extremely useful

Saves so much time when trying to locate that elusive string. Had an oddity with an I.P. address being added to Wordfence and within a minute was able to locate where this was located. Timesaver !!

The best of the best

This plugin crashed my entire website, not even disabling plugins helped getting my website back up, the only thing I could do was to restore the daily backup my hosting creates. I could've lost all of my work because of this plugin, create a backup before you even install it.
