search and replace corrections for pages & posts

2 Replies ·

  1. Hi Justin. I need some help, please, for a WP plugin that allows search & replace functionality for posts, pages, custom post types, comments, and meta-data. Also using regular expression support would be nice.

    I don’t need to change URLs so much as correct spelling, grammar and punctuation errors and update older verbiage for uniformity.

    If there are other methods besides plugins, I would consider that, too.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Sorry for the late reply Dan. I’ve been without electricity for a bit due to storms knocking trees onto power lines in my area.

    I haven’t used such a plugin, so I can’t vouch for any in particular. Both of the following have solid reviews. The first is made by Delicious Brains, which I know to be a reputable company.

    As with any search/replace plugin, always back up your database first.

    Hi Justin. No worries on the delay, I was in no hurry. I’ll check out these two plugins. Thank you for your time!
