[resolved] Front End Search by Post_ID (4 posts)

    Hi Uffe.

    Thanks for the great plugin. It would be great if you can extend this to work on frontend searching as well. I would like to publish the post ID offline and allow my readers to find a specific post quickly by searching for its post ID (i.e. "the_id").

    Any help or reference to another solution will be appreciated.

    Hello, I'm sorry I haven't replied to this until now. Unfortunately there's no notification system for plugin developers to get messages about new posts.

    Anyway, as for your suggestion I just want to be sure that you mean that the built-in front end search (get_search_form) should search for ID's as well?

    Hi Uffe

    No, thanks for the reply.

    I think that is what I mean. Sorry I am not too clued up with the technical terms "(get_search_form)". But yes essentially if your plugin can be made available in something like a widget that could be used by users of the website (not necessarily subscribers) to find posts in the front end using just the post ID as a reference number that would be great. I think that will make your plugin 10X more useful as well.

    Hey Uffe.

    I got the answer to my problem and it was actually very simple. I use a normal text widget that contain this code.

    <form action="" method="get">
    Post: <input type="text" name="p">
    <input type="submit" value="Go To">
