This plugin is incredibly stupid, a huge catastrophe. You are familiar with various search-and-replace engines and you want to search for a term. The catastrophe strikes. The stupid plugin does not show you the search result, but replace whatever you had with a void! (because you left the replace box empty) Then try to restore your work! You cannot, because the stupid plugin does not have an undo option. Do not install it! It is not useless, but destructive!
my website was sending https to http links. I used this plugin to serah and replace these. There are no instructions anywhere on how to use it.
I contacted their support and noone ever came back to me. I tried to do and it and it took literally hours then I realised it had replaced all http: with httpsssssssss:
It has taken me ages again to change this and had to pay for someone to fix.
maybe I was doing it wrong but how would you know when there are no instructions
My web host migrated multiple sites to a different server -- and apparently, a UTF encoding setting wasn't correct. The result was that lots of special characters -- â€”Â, â€œ and â€¦, among others -- suddenly showed up all over my site.
My website goes back 18 years, so going back post by post wasn't a realistic option. And leaving that content strewn with unreadable garbage wasn't realistic, either.
I found this plugin, then determined what character each individual string of random characters was SUPPOSED to be. One by one, I replaced each string with the correct character.
It took about two minutes to correct errors across literally thousands of posts. It couldn't have been simpler.
I installed this plugin as it was recommended to update the urls of images when importing them from one blog to another during an integration process. Unfortunately, after running it I was told 0 rows had been updated so it did nothing at all. It may be possible that only the Pro version works, if that is the case why offer a free version that does nothing, it is basically just an advert.
