Admin Menu Search

Description

Admin Menu Search is a simple plugin that adds a search box to the top of the Admin Menu in the WordPress Dashboard. No more scrolling up and down or using your browser’s Ctrl+F or Find function to locate menu items.

Just enter a few characters in the Search Menus field and the Admin Menu will be trimmed down to only the items that match your search.

Submenus are also included in the search, so if you’re looking for “Widgets” it will keep the “Appearance” menu in the list because Widgets lives under Appearance / Widgets.

Handy tool to search long list of menus in dashboard. Was gonna write one myself but this does the job well.

Thank you for this great plugin, even with custom menu, it's not the same, it works letter by letter, it's great! A little extra that would have been nice is to put the background items that it finds step by step in green color and open the corresponding submenus. this would make it possible to go even faster. 🙂
