    I must be missing something here, but how do I search for content 'within' a file? The files I am trying to search through are php files so I know GDS is capable of reading them, but when I try and search for a term, it just shows me a list of directory or file names that match my query and not the content.

    This is not very helpful as this was the whole point of installing it.

    Can anyone provide me with how this can be done?

    TIA
