WordPress Helper// It's the little things, little things, that make the world

The Firefox extension WordPress Helper helps you working with WordPress by providing useful help and tools. The extension eases the fast and simple access to develop-relevant pages of the WordPress Codex. So you always have all the necessary help at your fingertips. It's also possible to search after strings of text that is currently marked. Furthermore it's possible to easily switch to WordPress backend of current site. More than that, a small Icon indicates wether the currently displayed website makes use of WordPress.

'Editor's Choice' links are obtained from a remote source (the author's website), therefore are faster kept updated and available than the Codex links of this WordPress Helper extension. The links are maintained by the plugin author, new links can be suggested by any user though.


  • Categorized Access to WordPress Help pages (WordPress Codex)
  • Search for highlighted text strings on websites

  2. christina, von welchen Features sprichst du? 🙂 Klick mal mit der rechten Maustaste irgendwo ins Browser-Fenster. Zudem befindet sich unten in der Statuszeile ein WordPress-Icon.

  3. Hello,

    This plugin is fantastic: nobody which has a WP site can live without. Great!

    Now a request (of course 🙂 : number of link shortcuts is low. Would be possible to add more?


    • Hey Massimo,
      I just put that on my ToDo list. I’ll add your wish to an upcoming version, along with other requests! 🙂

  4. The latest changes are great. The only thing I found wrong is that it’s not using the right admin link for comment spam for WordPress 2.7. I can live without it. 🙂

  5. Danke!

    This one proves to be very helpful with my keeping up with the stuff that comes up everyday.
