    I just tested and it works for me. But looking at your comment above, it looks like you’re using the same string for both the search and replace string “. ” (one period followed by one space).

    It wont find any results if the search/replace strings are the same, which is what seems to be happening here. I tested with one space replacing two spaces and it worked well.

    That’s just the formatting of this forum. It deleted the double space! I will try using backticks…

    . is the search string, . is the replace string.

    It doesn’t work for me — blog posts totally unaffected. So I wonder what is different?

    Would love to find out what could be causing that.
