Allows search by id in admin by prefixing id with #. For example, search for #123 returns post id 123. Original idsearch function written by t31os on the forums.

A brief Markdown Example

Features added in version 1.0:

  • everything thus far


  • Search in action!


Can I change the prefix from # to something else?

Not via the admin (yet). Add this to your themes functions.php and replace the # with any character you desire:

function asid_prefix_replacement($wp) {
    global $ASID_PREFIX;
    $ASID_PREFIX = '#';
add_action( 'parse_request', 'asid_prefix_replacement', 99 );
