"There has been a critical error on your website"

Just gives me this error: "There has been a critical error on your website"

A very useful and effective plugin.

The "Search & Replace" plugin works very well. I tested the search and replace function in Wordpress 6.1.1,PHP 7.4 and MySQL 8.0.32-0ubuntu0.22.04.2. Love the dry run and the fact that you can see what has been changed. Thank you very much!

+Fast + Shows changes in diff view - Abandoned + In WP 6.1.1 still somehow works

Review was written with classic editor. Now did some editing with a conversion to blocks which looked fine in the block editor. But as soon as I save, the markup gets broken. It gets wrapped in a classic block again, despite being supposedly block-content now.

Easy to use and functional

Does the job and is very simple to use

Still useful

Still useful for example to manually quickly update Slider Revolution image paths after a site migration (or simpliy make these paths absolute -> relative) searching in table "wp_revslider_slides"... Even though sometimes acts strange with escaping chars: e.g. can't find strings like " http://mysite.d.mydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/revslider " and you have to search for "http:\/\/mysite.d.mydomain.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/revslider" instead, some others correctly matches strings like "https://instawpcom.b-cdn.net/wp-content/uploads/revslider" without escaping chars at all (!?).... When forced to use escaping chars in the search string, the "Details" link won't show the preview table correctly BTW. Hope someone will continue it one day.

Still work!

This is the best free Search & Replace plug-in. Allows you to do a dry-run before writing the changes to the database.

Best DB Find&Replace

By debe13 on December 30, 2021

I installed several other Plugins, but this one was definite my best hit i could use safely. Best is the sample-run before changing. ALso the appearing changes after use is outstanding. Everything within the free-version. Great!
