Simple search and replace plugin allows you to replace strings of content across your WordPress site. Although there are other similar plugins on the market they didn’t allow you to exclude categories. So, for example, on my ebay sites I use a plugin to add products to my site. Although I might want to change the product from “blue widgets” to “red widgets” I might not want to change all my articles so … Simple Search & Replace Plugin was born.
The plugin is super simple to use. All you need to do is:
- Upload the plugin via Plugins/Add New in your WordPress dashboard
- Activate the plugin
- Go to Settings/Search & Replace and start searching and replacing. If you want to exclude a category so that the content is not replaced just choose it from the side menu.
