Search Regex adds a powerful set of search and replace functions to WordPress that go beyond the standard searching capabilities, with full regex supp
Love it. Thank you so much for providing this plug-in.
I was concerned about using this plugin since it wasn't approved for v3.6.1 and hadn't been updated in a while. However, I did a full backup and tried it and was successful. I reviewed numerous search and replace plugins and was happy to see recent reviews of others that had tried this with wp 3.6.1. I had just released a site and had to replace all of the urls of the test site to the url of the new site. The wonderful thing is that you can just reveiw the results without actually doing any replacing of text. I was a little concerned because my site doesn't include any posts yet, just all pages. Although the parameters given didn't give me a choice for pages, I used 'posts' and it worked fine.
As always - do a backup before you ever do anything like this. Thanks to the developer of this plugin.
Thanks, it works. Found a bad path and fixed 236 instances in about a second. Live long, stay healthy.
Nice touch including Find, Replace (preview), Replace & Save.
Limit doesn't seem to be working right now, but that would only be big deal on massive searches.
This is a fantastic plugin. It's very simple to use, easy to read search results, it's fast, and most importantly - it just works!
Simple solution to use regular expressions for search and replace.
Works like a charm!
On a new site almost all the text was HTML color coded, with two pages having errors with the color code. It took 5 minutes to install the plug-in and about 20 seconds to replace scores of codes. Instant satisfaction, great job! Will have lots of other uses.
Perfect, compact, no errors! Thanks!
Dropped the SSL from a wordpress site when I switched hosting companies, so all the links to images and other posts/pages no longer worked. Search Regex to the rescue. Even a newb like me had no trouble setting it up and running it. Corrected almost 8,000 links in about a minute.
Only issue was when I tried to search only, it kept freezing -- probably due to the size of my database. So, I selected "search and save" and it worked like a charm. Fabulous plug-in.
