Best search and replace plug-in period!
We created a regular expression to perform the look-up. Other plug-ins would
a) replace the contents of the post in the database
-> this is not the desired behavior as “<span>”s sometimes get “eaten” by the visual editor
b) work for posts, but not for pages
c) work for posts, also for pages, but not inside shortcodes
-> our theme uses shortcodes for a variety of things, so we needed them.
d) completely break the site
re.place was the ONLY plug-in out of the 5 we tested that didn’t check any of the above and that ALWAYS worked exactly the way we wanted it to. I highly recommend it!
