Search & Replace


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:
Replace With:
The url become something like:…

Correct “Replace with”:
Search For:
Replace With:
The url become something like:…

We have implemented special features!

The first one is “Replace a Domain / URL” that is useful for a quick and simple transfer or a migration of a WordPress site.
The second feature is full support for serialized data. There are a lot more features – check them out! ­čÖé

Our goal with this plugin is to give you a good solution for manipulating your data for both Developers and Users of WordPress.

Note: This plugin requires PHP 5.6 or higher to be activated.

Great plugin! It cannot be simpler! Easy to use and works fine. Saved me a lot of time. (I have to confess despite having used this plugin before, I did give a try to Better Search and Replace and it did NOT work even after reading their documentation. This plugin is second to none to complete the task! Recommended! BEWARE: when you do a Search & Replace (Dry Run unchecked) and get the message "### tables were processed. #### cells need to be updated." what it really means is the updates WERE ACTUALLY COMMITTED! - I almost go nuts. A better way of saying it could be: "### tables were processed. #### cells were updated." ­čÖé Keep it up team! Thank you!

I had just migrated a WordPress site and all of my images had disappeared. I knew it was a URL problem, but how was I to fix HUNDREDS of wrong URLs in the database? This plug-in saved my bacon! I especially like its "dry run" feature so I could see exactly what would be changed. I ran that first, on two different queries. Once I saw that it all checked out, I had the plug-in make the changes to the database and now I'm back in business. Thank you so much!

This plugin works just as described. The following suggestions may improve the product. Wish it had just a "Search" option without having to use the "Replace" function. After updating the reply is "xx tables were processed. xx cells need to be updated." I think it should read "xx tables were processed. xx cells were updated. Finally, if you try to reupdate the same data, the function still gives a reply, "xx tables were processed. xx cells need to be updated." However, when you click on "View details" nothing is displayed on the results page. Perhaps you should add a statement like, "This table was already updated with this data."
