Didn't work

Not working and damaged my database

Works great except for widgets

By p13patch on August 21, 2023

Plugin works as expected (free version, haven't used pro). Only frustration was it couldn't seem to update some content inside a couple widgets in the footer. Needed to update url strings after migrating the site and the links in the widgets never got updated.

great plugin, no problems whatsoever

Destroys website

By wizfinger on July 31, 2023

A simple replace of a single word in posts does not work as intended: all URLs that happen to contain the word are also changed, and for example e-mail addresses.

There should be a clear distinction as to what is being modified and options to include or exclude URLs for example. There should be warnings when high risk tables are being modified, such as wp_options.

There should be a distinction between replacing text in human/user readable content and essential system data.

Simple and efficient
