As long as you confirm that your version of WordPress is covered, go for it. It's a gem and can save HUGE amounts of time.

Needed to replace URL's since a blog name change and this was perfect. Remember to back up though as it doesn't give you a chance to confirm or undo so once you press the button you're done for if you've made mistake - unless you can search and replace your way out of it. :)

Excellent

I tried some Replace plugins and finally the best one is this one

I have to do this :

my old domain was in many posts (so images are not visible)
http://www.myolddomain.ext
and I wrote the new one
http://www.mynewdomain.ext/nameolddomain/
and every thing was replaced !

Thanks

IF USING - BE SOOOO CAREFUL

Please note - this tool DOESN'T work like windows "find and replace". You can't JUST search. If you search and leave the "replace" form section blank it just deletes the searched terms completely - ruined half a dozen pages on one of my sites.

If you want to just search, my suggestion is you copy and paste the same term in to search and replace boxes so that it replaces with the same. Hopefully you won't then experience the issues I have.

This could have been made WAY clearer with the plugins user notes etc!
