Search and replace the words, phrases and HTML in real time throughout the content without changing the database.

The mass search and replace tool allows a complete database wide search to replace WordPress text. This is a real-time find and replace tool that applies any number of pre-defined rules after a page is generated by WordPress,

Great plugin, helped me a lot

~200 pages of articles, with most of them needing links replaced. CM On Demand Search and Replace helped me turn this job (that I feared will take me days) into a simple, easy and fast one. Thank you!

Amazing Plugin!!!! Very Easy to Use.

This plugin does the job excellently well!

I’ve been searching endlessly for days on how to change some texts on my site pages into html image codes to no avail.

I saw a few solutions that mentioned changing those texts from the database level – no way am I tampering with the DB – I stayed clear (Except you know what you’re doing, don’t mess with your db)! I also found some forms of javascript tweak but they all didn’t do the job perfectly, breaking my pages atimes.

This plugin came to the rescue. The ease of use is amazing: just copy and paste – one to the left the other to the right. That’s it.

Thanks so much for making that core plugin function of search and replace free-of-charge. Although there is a little advert at the bottom of the pages I applied it but that can easily be edited out if you want to in the Edit page area.

Thanks a bunch.

Great plugin!!!

The plugin and especially the customer support is great!
I had the following problem: I auto created 25.000 posts to my website that each had a different title and different content.
However, I made a mistake and each title contained a “#” sign in the title.
So, I bought this plugin to get rid of the “#” sign in each single title of all the 25.000 posts on my website.
I tried but had problems figuring it out.
Then I contacted customer support that could help me straight away!
Now, all my post titles are perfect!
I can recommend this plugin a lot!

Didn't Work, Very Disappointed

I’m in WP 4.3.1 now but was using this plugin for 4.3 – Simply put, Affiliates made a change to their codes which required all their code links be modified at the HTML level. had to become something else so I was directed to this plugin and it seemed to be an easy enough search and replace. Sadly when the old string and new were placed into the boxes nothing happened and I am still left with over 2.5K instances of manual replacement. Too bad Jetpack doesn’t offer a global search and replace that we can use and shame on for instilling such a dramatic editing initiative on their affiliates.
