Very good - works perfect - it changed all the images links HTTP to HTTPS after I installed SSL certificate on my site. Thanks to author for the great job! And it still works on WordPress v. 4.5.1, that's great :)

Great ! Saved a lot of time ^^

Saved me so much time and trouble

I used this with the latest version of WP and the plugin worked fine. I suspect that those who claim the plugin does not work did not properly input their URLs (note: I'm pretty sure you HAVE to use the "http://www" prefix and not a shortcut like "mysite.com").

Also, some have said it's slow; I didn't find that at all but maybe it's a function of site size, or this issue has been fixed.

The only links it did not find were in my widgets and in my theme's custom options such as my site header. It also cannot get inside galleries such as those built by the plugin Smart Slider 3 that I use.

That the plugin does not get into widgets, theme options, or galleries may actually be a good thing, or the plugin might likely break the others, though I really don't know. What I do know is that fixing the widgets and site header was simple and far less time-consuming that updating hundreds of links. (I am nevertheless taking off one star for this in case it should find these things.)

(Note to anyone also using Smart Slider 3: don't panic; all you have to do to fix is reopen each slider, let it find its images in the media library, then resave.)

My only regret is that I did not find this plugin when I was building my new site because I had imported content from a previous WordPress site and had to rebuild all the links by hand. Duh! I should have known someone would have built a plugin for that!

Thanks for making short work out of what would otherwise have been a tedious task. Donation on the way.

Great plugin

This plugin is essential when migrating a website. Worked perfectly.
Just one advise for future updates:
You should let the plugin automatically search and update encoded urls too. I had to insert encoded url in "old url" manually for it to update it. May be needed in a lot of cases like mine.

Perfect

Did exactly what it's supposed to. Worked right out of the box.

it does the work, a "loading bar" would be a plus

As I run a businesses directory, my requirement was to update not only the images but also images URLs iside each custom_fields. The plugin apparently did the job, but I can tell you that I was fearing the worst because everything was running silently and it took about 20 minutes. I strongly suggest to developers to include a loading spinner/bar, so that users can relax while running the plugin.

worked but took a while

It took some time to change all links. But it worked as described after figuring out a few kinks. For instance, I had to refresh page after every change for plugin to work again. This isn't for you if you don't have patience.

Helped a lot
