Hi
I need to edit some text on my website. When I do a search for one unique word that is in that block of text, the result comes back as zero. But the word is definitely in a file somewhere in the folder because it is on the webpage when I look at it in my browser! Is it a setting?

In the search tab:
Path(s): I clicked on browse and chose the folder where my website sits.
Exclude Path(s): I left blank
Include Files: I leave blank but when the search is complete this appears in the box: "*.*"
Exclude files: blank
Query: the word I'm searching for happens to be "soar" ...... and it's definitely on my webpage!

Include files filter is RegX: unticked
Exclude files filter is RegX: unticked

In the Advanced Tab I have selected:
match Query to entire file, I also tried match query to each line in file
show file names that match the query text
show folder names that match query text
search sub folders

I didnt select date filters or file size filters

Any ideas? Thanks.

Are they just normal HTML files that you're searching?

Hi Keith.

It's a wordpress website, so I guess they're php files with html inside the php files.

Cheers,

Is the word you're looking for in one of the posts? Wordpress uses a database backend for storing the content, so the php files themselves don't usually have post content in them. Unfortunately FileSeek can't search within database files though.

Ah, ok. That makes sense now. The "page" the word was on wasn't in fact a page. I think it was a post. I have the website backed up locally but I dont have access to the admin panel.
