FAQ

Why there isn’t a option to search contents of all posts?

Although all searches of posts are user initiated. Searching for key phrases in contents of each post would compromise the performance of a WordPress installation.

Does this parse tags within tags?

Sorry, This plugin allows parsing of external encapsulating tags. Not tags inside of tags. Tags inside tags will be treated by Gutenberg as requiring repairs and Gutenberg editor will alert post editor.

Does this plugin edit posts with publish status by default?

You have a choice to select the post with status you prefer.
