Widget Search Filter


Widget Search Filter makes it super easy to find the widget you are looking for by adding a live filter search box to your widgets page. The search box can be used to filter all of your available widgets – simply begin typing the name of the widget you’re looking for, and Widget Search Filter will magically show only matching widgets – all in real time. This can be extremely helpful for sites with lots of widgets, which would normally require excessive scrolling and dragging.
