Great plugin indeed!

Excellent plugin; note: doesn't support line breaks (newlines) in replace
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is a really well-designed plugin -- preview feature is indispensable.

Note, though, that the plugin does not allow you to insert real line breaks/newlines in the replace field. (That is, \n and \r will be escaped automatically. <br> can be inserted without a hitch.)

Hard to even list all the different ways this tools helps, and all the different solutions it's helped provide. Thanks.

The Donate link on your Description page (in WP Plugin Directory) is a 404. When it's fixed, will send some cash your way.

Powerful and safe to use
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Got me out of trouble
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Saved me a lot of work, thanks!

Bye bye, embedwidth!

(\[embedwidth src="(.*?)"([^\]]*)\])

<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)

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!

Does a great job and it's quite easy to use.
