Still works with WordPress 4.5
By , for WP 4.5.3

Amazingly, still works after years of not being updated. And also amazingly, one of the only useful thesaurus plugins for wordpress. You would think a platform devoted to writing and blogging would have a ton of different options available.

Only complaints are that entering a word that isn't found results in the plugin searching endlessly, and that hitting "enter" to search when the focus is on the widget doesn't result in a search and instead usually results in your post being updated and reloaded. You have to manually hit the "search" button on the widget for it to work.

Other than that, solid. It would be great if someone in the future could make a plugin akin to Microsoft Word where you can right-click on a word and have instant access to a list of synonyms in the pop-up menu.

This still works!

I really can't believe there isn't an updated Thesaurus plugin for WordPress. (Unless I'm missing it in my search for plugins.)

So I installed this to see what would happen and it still works! The only thing I don't like about it so far is if you put in a word that is not recognized it just keeps spinning. For instance: "perpetrated" is not recognized and just endlessly spins, but "perpetrate" brings up results.

Only giving 4 stars because of the above criticism and that it hasn't been updated in so long.
