Reviews

Worked perfectly, easy to use

Moved a website to another host, implemented LetsEncrypt SSL and HTTPS and used Search and Replace to clean up. Easy to use and worked without issues. Used WhyNoPadlock to check, and everything was OK.

worked where others didnt

velvet blues plugin (which I see being most recommended in search results) couldn’t update the URLs of the images on my site when our domain changed. This plugin did the job. And it has several features for free that are pay-walled by other plugins:
1. revealing exactly what replacements are happening such that I could copy the logs for keeping records.
2. Dry run that lets me know exactly what changes will happen before doing them
3. bringing proactivity to url replacements, website migration: replace and export db to import at destination with all needed changes already done.
4. first thing we see is a simple button to backup the DB : not just advising but enabling the user.
5. we can choose all tables, or choose exactly which tables to run the replacement on.
