This works GREAT! Had to imort 700 posts from an old site to a new one, from .com to .org, and this really helped me.

Saved my sanity
By , for WP 4.2.2

I tried several search and replace plugins. I was trying to add a div to a shortcode to float it - seems this is the only way to do this (go figure)

One of the plugins added escape characters to my string and then wouldn't let me delete them, by searching for the string it created.

One found all the strings but then nothing happened when I replaced them.

One did nothing.

I thought it may have had something to do with the editor

I was not looking forward to going through every post to change it manually.

But this works fine, made the changes simply and safely. So thank you

Thank you for delivering the goods
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin was easy to use and did exactly as promised.
Other search/replace engines implied a lot more changes, but did not tell me what those changes were. With this plugin, there was no mystery.

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.
