That's not what the OP said. What he actually said was:CTRL + F can not search the database. He's asking to search the template system for certain keywords.
Based on that statement, I can't see why CTRL-F wouldn't suffice.I would like to request a search feature within a template as we are editing it.
That is exactly what I'm talking about and no using the browser search does not always find what you need within templates. I've always found that an inner search has done the job.I am pretty sure he is talking about how in vB you can edit a template then near the bottom it has a box that says "search in template" then to the right of the box it has "find" so that you could search within the template.
Actually, I've had that same problem so I know what he means. Like, searching for a color code that I know is in there, but for some reason the browser search doesn't "see" it.
When you search, are you sure you have your cursor in the template box (like I mentioned earlier)?I've had it not find exactly what I need in the templates on many different software platforms including vbulletin, wordpress etc. It will find everything else all over the "actual" web page but not inside a template.
