How do you BULK Edit Links?

8 replies
Hi, i have a WP Blog and i have around 30 or so links that all need to be changed to one link that i have. is there a simpler way to edit all of these links rather than do 1 at a time?:confused:

please, if you answer, i am still learning html and code, so, as easy as you can please!

    You could install the broken link checker plugin

    this will allow you to see alll your links on one page - and edit them there

    you can also do bulk editing too i believe

    you will have to click the checkbox next to each link

    if the links you wish to change are all the same link you could just open the html in an editor and use the find/replace option...

    if not, its probably going to be faster to edit them manually using select > paste then it would be trying to code or find a solution to do this, unless of course you are going to be doing it often then it could be worth finding a solution

    What candy was trying to say is that they are a bot at best, just a worthless poster at worst.

    I use Notepad++, you can use regex expressions, hold down the Alt-key to do vertical-line changes, and much more. Makes for altering links very easy.

    Take a back up of database from phpmyadmin. Open with notepad/notepad++. Replace the links & restore the database.

    Do this only if you are an expert. Else, don't even try it!

    There's a plugin you can use to find/replace links (or any text) across all posts and pages called WP Link Transformer. Google it, it's cheap and it works.
