WordPress Tips Of The Week:
Jeffro2pt0 – Jeremy Clarke mentioned to me about a way to search the Codex, WordPress support area and the plugin repository all from within FireFox. Simply click on the links of the search engines you want to add into the search bar within FireFox and install. Searching these various resources from within FireFox has already saved me a ton of time. To find out how to do this, check out the article I wrote explaining how to install these search engines into FireFox.
