Search Regex adds a powerful set of search and replace functions to WordPress that go beyond the standard searching capabilities, with full regex supp
Powerful search and replace. I especially like the clear interface and the safety built in by the replace previews before you click the "replace and save" button. Brilliant.
Fixed 1000 broken page content links in a flash. Very useful indeed. I'm reserving the fifth star for the update that adds widget fixes as well.
Bye bye, embedwidth!
<video class="wp-video-shortcode" src="$1" preload="metadata" controls="controls" $2 />
BTW, I have found this the only way that embedded videos in WordPress
a) are being streamed,
b) work on all browsers,
c) work on iOS.
Any deviation like putting the src="" in a <source...> tag did NOT work. Ah, and I had to add this to .htaccess
AddType video/mp4 mp4 mp4v mpg4 m4v
Thanks a lot for the plugin!!! I owe you one and will donate some coins! (Y)
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!
Does a great job and it's quite easy to use.
Love it. Thank you so much for providing this plug-in.
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.
Thanks, it works. Found a bad path and fixed 236 instances in about a second. Live long, stay healthy.
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.
This is a fantastic plugin. It's very simple to use, easy to read search results, it's fast, and most importantly - it just works!
