  • First create a report by selecting dry run from bottom of the setting section
  • Report will appear in a modal window. You can check there which row / data is going to be replaced.
  • On the report’s, if you think the replacement is perfect which you want, then close the report window and un-check the dry run and click the Find & Replace button.
  • Attention: Please check the report and make sure which data you are going to replace. It’s very important because once you replace it in the Database you can’t un-done it.

Worked perfectly for what I need to do.
11 Novembre 2020
Hi, I have installed the plugin and it killed my site. I tried to buy the plugin to get help. I never received support and developer was very bad with me. they responded only to argue, and never responded to my support request. Obviously the money was never refunded. If you want to keep your site good, and get support with honest people, try another similar plugin.
