Support » Plugin: Search & Replace » Invalid Permalinks

  • I did a S&R changing “rainforest” to “rain forest”.

    Came across one issue.

    It dropped a space into my permalinks that had “rainforest” in them. On output they showed as rain%20forest, but that’s not valid, it should have been rain-forest.

    It seems to me permalinks ought to be escaped to use hyphens… maybe even regex to identify inline links in content and drop hyphens in there to.

    Thanks for this hint. Do you use the s/r about all tables or custom tabels form the second part of the plugin?

    Most often I use all tables.

    However, since slug (post_name) is stored in wp_posts table it can’t really be isolated by that UI to avoid this.
