Support » Plugin: Better Search Replace » Search and replace seemed to work, but didn’t

    I am probably making some kind of rookie mistake but would appreciate anyone who could help me out.
    my client put a large number of files in a folder called “pdfs” in the wp-includes folder and linked to them through-out the site.
    To fix I move them to a folder called “media” rather than inside wp-includes.

    I ran Better Search and Replace searching for “thedomain.ca/wp-includes/pdfs” and replacing it with “thedomain.ca/media/pdfs”

    I highlighted all tabled clicked on run, and it did it’s thing. Told me it had made changes in several places. All good.
    Went to site clicked on a link and it went to the old location…
    I’m definitely doing something wrong, but can’t figure it out.
    Do I need to use a different plugin or approach to change all the links in the site pages? Or…?
    Thanks in advance for your help,
    ernie

  • Let me answer my own question…

    While the old address appears in the browser menu bar it is being re-directed to the new location. (Has to be given I deleted the old location.) It works!

    Thank you. Sometimes asking the question gets my brain in gear.
