Excellent Utility
By , for WP 4.2.2

This utility has been immensely useful for updating some old html pages I'd imported. The regex-based search and replace facility is excellent, particularly as it gives you the option to preview all your proposed changes before implementing them. Not only that: but if you spot any exceptions that don't work the way you'd expect, you also have the option to go directly to that page and edit it manually.

I would have given this 5 stars, except for one bug, which has apparently been unfixed for over a year according to a report on this forum. The case-insensitive checkbox, which displays when using regex expressions, doesn't work. There is a workaround described in this post.

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.
