I used the search and replace plugin to replace this text: img src= with a nonsense phrase of "bulldog" on a simple WordPress site. The net result was that images in posts have been effectively disabled.
The plug-in does not work on a multiuser installation with hundreds of tables to deal with.
I am looking for the correct syntax to use to run an SQL command(?) that will replace "img src=" with my nonsense phrase of "bulldog" across all tables of the various users.
Also, perfectly willing to hire an experienced person to clean up four sites for me. Just need to disable all existing images in posts thanks to Getty Images not believing in cease and desist (remove our copyrighted image or else). Instead they just sue for thousands of dollars.
