Support » Plugin: Better Search Replace » can't replace domain / sub-folder url

  • Hi,

    as i mentioned in another post regarding visual builder / page builder plugins, i have the following issue:

    i moved my demo page to a new staging server.

    to old url was (as an example):

    installed here:

    the new address is:

    i used “duplicator pro” to move the whole installation which worked so far.
    But it didn’t changed some url’s which are placed, for example, on some buttons which i created with “visual composer”.

    So, i was testing your plugin to replace any string like this:

    But “better search & replace” can’t find any informations in the tables.

    i tried to just search for:

    and this brings up a lot of results, mostly on wp_posts tables.

    But it don’t work with the whole url…

    if i search for “” the results shrinks from over 270 to 6 hits.
    if i search for “ it’s zero …

    does this have something to do with the slash “/” ?

    What can i do to get this working..?

    i would appreciate any help,

    Thanks You!!\/demo\/my-wordpress

    I have been having issues with a “page builder” and BackupBuddy not changing the full URL paths when I used a /folder like mentioned above. I found generic workarounds, but have been trying to find a real fix for months. Finally found this thread, added the \/ between folders in the path inside your plugin and BAM, worked like a charm.

    Thanks again!!!
