very usefull
By ,

additional function would be nice:
In multisite installations it would be good to choose the site specific database tables, because sometimes I have to make changes only in a_posts-table of one site.

Saved me a bunch of time. Works great!
By , for WP 3.9

I recently built a new theme for a client, and when I transferred the database from the development server to the live server a bunch of weird character strings started appearing randomly throughout the content. I started going into every post and fixing them manually, but with more than 200 posts I needed a more efficient solution. This plugin provided it. It works like a charm!

After moving to a self-hosted wordpress blog (www.amanfrommoab.com), most of the photos in my old +300 posts did not work. In seconds solved this great plugin the problem. Thank you :)

Does exactly what it says but wording could be clearer
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin does just what it says but use with caution. The wording isn't all that clear so be sure to backup before using and take your time before doing anything.

REGARDING THE BAD REVIEWS:
If you break your site using this plugin it's unlikely to be the plugin's fault. There are oodles of fields in the WordPress Database that hold your site together - accidentally changing some of them can ruin your site.. backup first.

Did exactly what I needed.

I needed to remove old short code from almost every post I have when changing my old theme to a new one. This plugin worked like a charm!!
