    Quick question, to anyone; does this plugin replace GUID, or not? (or is there a switch for that somewhere?). Thanks.

    Hi Rcain,

    Yes, this plugin will replace any matching GUID.

    It is worth noting that if you are using permalinks the GUID will be formatted different than a typical permalink. This does not matter is you are just replacing the domain because it will match and be replaced. Also, GUID typically don’t have the trailing slash, so you will want to enter the OLD and NEW URL without the trailing slash.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for the fast reply Mat. Good to know.

    Feature suggestion: check box whether or NOT to replace GUID’s.

    eg: for migrations from development site to production site – GUID replacement is useful/justified, but for eg: for an existing production site changing from http://www.mysite.com -> mysite.com, in would be inappropriate to replace the GUID. A nice, fail-safe switch would be useful

    Thanks again
