Great little timesaver this, and integrates perfectly with the WordPress UI. Access it via the link in the top right, or better still press CTRL-M to bring up the search panel.

I am not sure why the search option that comes with my wordpress installation doesn't work, but this plugin does exactly what it says it does. Takes 2 seconds to install and fixed my problem. I was looking for a post that the default search couldn't find. This plugin in found it first time in less then a second. Maybe wordpress should include this in its core installations. No mess, no fuss no hassles. Super easy to use. Note to developer. It took me longer to find this page to leave you a positive review then it did to install and find my post. You should incorporate a way to make it easier to leave you a review in the future. If I hadn't just spent 5 hours doing an annoying task I wouldn't have been so motivated to jump through the hoops I did to leave you a 5 star review
