A simple search for find strings in your database and replace the string.
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.
Frank, thanks for creating this really useful plugin!
In the past, when I wanted to do a site-wide search and replace, I had to look up the syntax of the SQL query and take great care to enter the query correctly in phpMyAdmin. This plugin is so much faster and easier!
I'd like to suggest two ways to improve the plugin:
Because of these two issues, I still need to use phpMyAdmin for my information searches; however, I definitely prefer to use this plugin to do the actual search and replace.
Thanks very much,
Worked well for me. Could do a test search for strings in broken image URLs pointing to a test domain before doing the actual find and replace. Saved me lots of time.
Gave this plugin 4 out of 5 stars, as I agree with earlier commenter that the UI could be clearer to differentiate between a test search and a live search and replace.
