Reviews

Perfekt

Ich wollte die URL ersetzen, hat auch super geklappt, nur nicht ├╝ber die URL-Funktion, sondern das normale Suchen & Ersetzen.

Works Like a champ.

GoDaddy botched the site when I migrated it from Staging to Production. All of the images on the Production site were being called from the Staging site. This plug-in updated the URLs for 1384 images in just a few seconds.

Doesn’t work at all

I tried this on multiple tables and not one change was made. When I selected to download the SQL file instead, it was completely empty.
