Plug-in gratefully offers a variety of methods to arrive at the same goal, based on one's comfort level and/or goal.

Unfortunately, this plug-in did not work for me. It seems that the plugin was confused that I was merely trying to swap two similarly-looking URLs; development and production.

The Search & Replace "DRY RUN" feature worked well, producing a valuable report which I ended up leveraging to manually complete my goal (see support post below). However, the plugin halted, when attempting to directly update the database, thereafter.

My Windows hosting platform criteria is as follows, if of any interest:

  • Microsoft-IIS/7.5
  • PHP 5.5.8
  • mySQL 5.6.17
  • WordPress 4.4.2
  • WooCommerce 2.5.5

Notwithstanding the above, I received outstanding support - even over a weekend! See this post.

I had about 60 posts that had text of a shortcode for a plugin that I'm no longer using. This plugin saved me from having to open up and edit each post individually to remove the garbage text. I really appreciate the dry run and database backup features too.

It's save my life !

After a migration of my website... all my .PDF links (3 131 exactly) still goes to the old URL. It take me 3mn with this Plugin to replace all the links with the new URL in the database. Great Work... Thank you so much !

Moved a site to a subdomain from an expired domain. All the content was available, but not linking properly. Ran this plugin and it was magic! Very happy.

Perfect Package For Migrating

This saved me a lot of work when a install went and changed my url's and I lost my images. Thank you great program easy to use and love the dry run feature to see if it is doing what you are asking it to do.

It used to be a great plugin until the last update. It can not find anything. I try in phpMyadmin and found this;

#1253 - COLLATION 'utf8mb4_unicode_ci' is not valid for CHARACTER SET 'utf8'
