Search and Replace – a plugin in WordPress

I have faced many situations where in I have to search for a string in my blog and replace it with another string. This usually happens in case you move your blog from one domain to the other.

The difficult way is to use SQL to update the strings. However, there is an easier method to replace a string using a plugin Search and Replace.

The plugin can search in the ID, post-content, GUID, title, excerpt, meta-data, comments, comment-author, comment-e-mail, comment-url, tags/categories and categories-description.

Download and install the wordpress plugin. Once installed, the plugin will be available under Tools.
