    I would really like to see a way to search text in a css file or php file without having to download the file and edit it locally, then reupload it.

    the css/php editor

    To clarify, can you post a link to a screenshot of this editor you're referring to?

    Thanks.

    For now can you use something like Notepad++ to do the search-and-replacing? By copying the code out of the editor and pasting it into Notepad++, etc.

    Thanks for the response.

    I am trying to cut down on the number of apps I need open at any one time. That's why I love WordPress, no more fTP!

    ... until you make a mistake and bring the entire site down. Then you will always need to use FTP. Personally, I think it is highly inadvisable to make changes to any theme file without first ensuring that you have a backup copy.
