WPLookup – The Google Search of WordPress Functions

I have always found the codex to be too difficult sometimes, and the search has always been very ineffective, especially when I am looking for something as simple as a WordPress function.

WPLookup tries to help fix that issue by providing a simple search interface for connecting you to various codex function pages quickly.

It looks as though the originator just connected various keywords to various codec pages.

It is definitely an interesting start to what could be a great project, and product, but I worry that WordPress’ own site will eventually get a better search, thus negating some of the usefulness of this site.

    Wow David I just tried this out. It’s definitely much better then the codex for searching for functions instead of titles.

    Anyways, usually people are searching for a specific function, such as calender, comment plugin, etc… I can see this becoming very popular in the near future.

    Let’s hope so. Communities should push vendors to improve themselves.
