• This is one of the worst plugins I have ever seen. It loves to silently delete your posts. All you have to do is touch that “Delete” link that spends most of its time invisible, hiding 10 pixels from the “View” link, and POOF! your post is gone. Forever. Not in the trash, not made private or draft, no, it is gone right out of the database table like it never existed. There is no warning, no confirmation, nothing. In fact, it happens so fast you will probably miss it. Much later, you will wonder what happened to all your posts – now you know.

    I finally had to hack the javascript and disable the delete function to make the plugin safe enough to use at all. But even after that, I found it had gotten me a second time, and I’m afraid I just don’t know how many more posts this plugin has eaten. There is no record, they are just gone. I finally disabled most of the user interface, as no part of it is safe – you can end up doing a lot of damage without even realizing it. Most of that is irrelevant junk anyway – why should a search-and-replace have built-in edit and delete functions anyway?

    This plugin actually does most of what it advertises, and pretty well, but if you are going to use it, be extremely careful. The user interface is generally clunky, vague and unhelpful, and you are left wondering what any operation might do. At one point, it deleted my entire database instead of replacing a string as it seemed to advertise. No warning or confirmation, just deleted everything. Luckily, by then I was extremely suspicious and made a fresh backup first. Sometimes match means a few characters, sometimes it means the entire post, and sometimes it means the entire database. You get to find out the fun way. This plugin is a complete boobytrap.
