Includes Preview of Replace
By , for WP 3.6.1

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.

Very useful for simple but numerous replacements.

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.

Saved My Bacon
By , for WP 3.3.1

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.

Absolutely awesome
By , for WP 3.5.1

Key plugin when you are migrating or need global changes to your data. It's even better than going straight to mySql since the regex support is much harder.

The preview is absolutely essential to make sure your queries are properly written.

Feature suggestion: be able to limit the search/replace to a specific category.

Fantastically Useful
By , for WP 3.4.2

Sure i could just go do it on phpMyAdmin or in other ways, but sometimes you just want to tweak something or make a more detailed search, nothing beats search-regex for that, installed on all of wp sites, incredibly simple and useful!
