Replaced old Permalinks in Posts just fine
By , for WP 3.8

I changed my permalink structure and used Search Regex with a regular expression to update nearly 1000 embedded URLs in posts to the new format. Saved me days of effort!

Great plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

I was concerned about using this plugin since it wasn't approved for v3.6.1 and hadn't been updated in a while. However, I did a full backup and tried it and was successful. I reviewed numerous search and replace plugins and was happy to see recent reviews of others that had tried this with wp 3.6.1. I had just released a site and had to replace all of the urls of the test site to the url of the new site. The wonderful thing is that you can just reveiw the results without actually doing any replacing of text. I was a little concerned because my site doesn't include any posts yet, just all pages. Although the parameters given didn't give me a choice for pages, I used 'posts' and it worked fine.

As always - do a backup before you ever do anything like this. Thanks to the developer of this plugin.

Includes Preview of Replace

Nice touch including Find, Replace (preview), Replace & Save.

Limit doesn't seem to be working right now, but that would only be big deal on massive searches.

Very useful for simple but numerous replacements.

On a new site almost all the text was HTML color coded, with two pages having errors with the color code. It took 5 minutes to install the plug-in and about 20 seconds to replace scores of codes. Instant satisfaction, great job! Will have lots of other uses.
