Too complicated (4 posts)

    Sorry but unless you're a database jockey, this plugin is hard to figure out. Some help would make it more useful. Like, why do we care about filters/etc.? I know there are reasons, but "search/replace" shouldn't be so complicated. Looked for help, BTW, didn't find any.

    I'm going to work directly in php myadmin.

    I know it's a bit complex, because SSR1 requires the user to understand WP database tables, and the user interface is not very intuitive/easy. That is the reason for SSR2 (version 2.0) which will support 10 common tasks with intuitive and easy interface hiding technical details. But implementing good UIs and features requires a lot of work.

    See the functionalities of SSR 2.0

    agree with csrollyson, looks great and may well be able to do lots but I am not that familiar with selectors and filters just needed to know how to search and replace one word (part of a directory name) but the "how to" does not tell me how to the only part I understand is select the table then I'm lost :( good work Benjamin it looks promising and can't wait to see some step by step instructions.

    I'm with Stevinoz. I got the table figured out, but from there, I'm lost. A prompt or a step-by-step would be great. I may have to wait for SSR 2.0. Looks like just what I need.
