  • chadrew


    As title says, browser search (Ctrl+F) no longer finds text in editor windows except what’s displayed on the screen. Apparently that’s the way CodeMirror works:

    In comparison to browser search, the built-in code editor search is awkward and there doesn’t seem to be a way to move the previous/next result.

    Not holding my breath but it would be nice to make it render everything so browser search would work, or a way to revert to the old “basic” editor.

    When CodeMirror was added, an option was also added to the user profile page to disable it. I’m thrilled the WP devs did that; otherwise I would have been forced to write a plugin to disable that abomination.

    Side-comment. For the life of me, I cannot understand why something that makes it easier to edit code was added to core at the same time an emphasis was made to keep people from doing that very thing. It’s like putting a plate of cookies in front of a youngster, giving them a glass of milk, but then saying to not touch the cookies because they’re bad for you. 🙂



    Oh man, I didn’t know there was already an option to disable it. Thank you very much.

    you can try by using another browser may it’s helpful.



    That option also turns off the syntax highlighting, which is actually useful. Can’t it be separated? Or make the search function work like the browser search. Please.
