Using the Find in File tool?



  • I am trying to find where a word/s happens in a theme directory. I see the ‘Find in File’ but how do I do it when the file/s are on the web server – in my case Dreamhost? What to use for the directory.?

    That’s not a native Notepad++ feature

    • In pure Notepad++: You must download the files to your PC, or have mounted the server so that Windows can see it.
    • If you’re using the NppFTP plugin for Notepad++, then you just have to open those files through the remote interface, and then you should be in %AppData%\Notepad++\plugins\config\NppFTP\Cache.
    • Or you use an application that crawls a website and can grep it for certain terms.
