WPMU Global Search

Description

Easily search through all blogs into your WordPress MU posts by post title, post content or post author.
WPMU Global Search can manage multiple search forms. Currently in the following languages:

  • English
  • Spanish (es_ES)

If you have created your own language pack, or have an update of an existing one, you can send gettext .po and .mo files to me so that I can bundle it into WPMU Global Search.

Screenshots

FAQ

If you have any further questions, please submit them.

Does this plugin work with WordPress 3.0 Multisite?

This plugin only works with WPMU but I’m working in a new plugin, Multisite Global Search, compatible with WordPress 3.0 Multisite.
WPMU Global Search is incompatible with WP 3 because it uses some deprecated functions and database tables are diferent.
