Better Internal Link Search is a WordPress plugin that helps you work faster in WordPress by making it easier and faster to find, and link to, content.
If you work in WordPress on sites with a lot of content, no doubt you’ve experienced the frustration of searching for a post or page in the WordPress Dashboard only to get a ton of search results that aren’t relevant.
Same thing happens when you use WordPress’s built-in Insert/edit Link tool to link to existing content.
By default, WordPress internal search returns results that contain your search term in the title and/or content, and they’re not presented in the most relevant order.
Better Internal Link Search to the rescue! It improves the built-in WordPress search functions so when you look for WordPress pages, posts, or other content it only returns results with your search term in the title.
There are a bunch of other easy functions for finding and linking to content on external sites too, including:
- WordPress Codex
- WordPress Plugin Directory
- GitHub (also GitHub Gists)
- and more . . .
Also, if you’re a developer, you can extend the plugin to add your own search sources – how about that?
Thanks for watching and tip your developers!
