Search Regex

Descrição

Search Regex adds a powerful set of search and replace functions to WordPress posts, pages, custom post types, and other data sources. These go beyond the standard searching capabilities, and allow you to search and replace almost any data stored on your site. In addition to simple searches you have the full power of PHP’s regular expressions at your disposal.

You can use this to do things like:
– Help migrate a site from one domain to another
– Update URLs in links and images
– Perform site-wide changes

Search filters can be created to match any column of any WordPress table. For example:
– Find all posts in a category
– Find all post meta data without a post
– Find all posts in a date range

Search Regex handles small and large sites.

What can I search?

You can search:
– Posts
– Pages
– Any custom post type
– Comments (including spam)
– Users
– Meta data
– WordPress options
– Supported plugins (such as Redirection)

Full regular expression support is provided, and you can capture data and use it in the replacement.

Actions

A variety of actions can be performed on matching results:
– Modify and replace the result
– Delete the result
– Export to CSV and SQL
– Perform custom PHP action

Modify and Replace Data

Results can be individually modified by clicking on the item to change, and using the popup modifier.

Bulk modifications can be performed against all matching results.

The types of modification depend on the data being changed:
– Numbers can be added or subtracted to existing numbers
– Hours, days, weeks, and months, can be added to dates
– Tags and categories can be added, removed, and substitued

Custom shortcodes are supported that allow dynamic data to be included:
– Add the current date and time, in any format, to content
– Insert data from other columns. For example, insert the category into the title
– Transform existing data. For example, convert case, change underscores to dashes.

Example uses

Some ideas for potential uses:
– Delete all comments that match a phrase
– Add a category to all matching posts
– Remove orphaned meta data

I am working on production and what I really like is that it is possible to create presets that are locked to "No Action". This allows me to search without the risk of accidently replacing the content. It could be safer still. FEATURE REQUEST: The search results return a column called "Matched Content". When hovering over a cell in this column a menu appears that contains "Delete database row". Please allow the creation of Presets that prevent this option being shown. The benefit of this is that Searches would then be intrinsically safe.

This is a very cool plugin. I was able to use it to remove the date slug from content links (same domain) without breaking the date slug of the media files. Thousand thanks to the developer! At the support tab you can find my setting for this task under the topic: "How to remove date slug from content links on same domain" What I also like a lot is the test search, which shows exactly what changes... with highlighting of the text to be replaced.

Now, with the support for searching and replacing inside serialized data, it is without the competition in search & replace plugins. You can do anything with this plugin.

That's it It was an awesome plugin, never failed, but after 2 years of using it without any problem, this last version became so complicated, that I have no clue what I'm doing, so instead of breaking my site, I removed it. I spend hours trying to understand these peculiar settings on this version. Pitty. Why the hell did you make things so confusing?

After updating to PHP 8.0 it will not work. It causes a fatal error. Too bad, I was just learning to use it.
