Support » Plugin: Better Search Replace » Replacing  &nbsp

  • I’ve inherited a database where the client has many posts with   instead of spaces. But for some reason the search and replace tool does not find any instance of   despite the fact I can clearly see them in the database.

    My intention is to simply replace all instances of   with a space.

    Is there any way to get around this limitation?

    I had the same issue – but the other way round, I wanted to replace certain characters that weren’t displaying properly with html entities.

    So far the only way I’ve found of doing this is an SQL query in phpMyAdmin. For example:

    update wp_posts set post_content = replace(post_content,'ž','ž')

    If anyone from Delicious Brains is reading this, any chance of adding a way to deal with this in a future version?

    (Sorry, I can’t make the html entity show as an html entity!
