Poor new release
By , for WP 4.5.2

The previous release was better than the the new one.
Because: the precision with excerpt is better than all the post.
Deactivated, and reinstall the previous release with my quotation as 5 stars,. The new release is only one.

Think before you use it
By , for WP 4.1

My website crashed after replacing URLS..

By , for WP 4.1

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!

Broken in WP 3.9.x
By , for WP 3.9.1

Seems to be no longer supported by authors.

Uses old MySql rather than MySqli
By , for WP 3.9.1

No good for later versions of php as this plugin has been built using mysql rather than mysqli.

Better off using https://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

Don't forget to delete this file afterwards.

By , for WP 3.8.1

It seemed to find a lot of code to replace, but it didn't replace it.

Piece of crap

Glad I had a back-up
By ,

Tried this plugin and it messed up my site. So I was glad to have a backup.

Would be better if it would only replace text and not any other things in your database.
