Note: This plugin is not maintained.
The code will stay inside the SVN and also on Github if you are interested.
With Search & Replace you can search for everything and replace this with everything but before you do this you can easily create a simple database backup and restore it.
For avoiding problem please keep in mind that this plugin search and replace strictly what is specified in „Replace With“.
Common error example:
Search For: http://web.com/wordpress/
Replace With: http://neuweb.com/wordpress
The url become something like: http://neuweb.com/wordpresscontent/…
Correct „Replace with“:
Search For: http://web.com/wordpress/
Replace With: http://neuweb.com/wordpress/
The url become something like: http://neuweb.com/wordpress/content/…
We have implemented special features!
