Search for text on a webpage and replace it with different text.
Allows you to search for text anywhere on the page and replace it with different text. For example: - quickly correct forms in which the wrong information has been entered multiple times - edit the text in Content Manage Systems editors such as the WordPress post editor - edit the HTML of the page - use regular expressions as a search term - capture matches from the regular expressions search term and apply as part of the replacement - save the instance of the search and replace and apply to all subsequent page visits - match pages by regular expressions to apply rules to many different web pages Please Note: 1. You must refresh the page or restart chrome before using. 2. Please select "Input Fields Only" if you are editing text in a text editor or form. 2. The popup will not stay open if you click elsewhere. This is a feature of Chrome. View a video of it in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf0D8RUdwkI
- (2023-11-20) Radim Chuděj: The extension does not work. Tried it in WordPress backend and it didn't detect any text I tried to find
- (2023-11-02) Robert Hornyak: It has been working like a charm for weeks, since the latest upgrade it stopped working. It has been a lifesaver so far, I'd need this on a daily basis. Thank you for fixing it in advance!
- (2023-10-26) Tony Jo: Replacing ¹² characters in content pasted from Bing chat in the wordpress Gutenberg editor is not successfully replacing them with null. The edit page says it was successfully replaced, but after saving and refreshing the page, it is not replaced. wordpress 古腾堡编辑器中替换从Bing chat粘贴过来的内容中的¹²字符时无法被成功替换为空。文章编辑页面显示已成功替换，但是保存后刷新页面发现并未替换。
- (2023-10-23) Vladimir Litviakov: beautiful extension.
- (2023-10-20) Florent Bod.: very nice👍
- (2023-09-14) haal Dong: 在推特输入框中似乎是体换几次就全文复制几次，没法用
- (2023-09-13) 司马子长: not working at all even after refreshing
- (2023-09-06) Don't do it: Does not save customizations using " $" (space followed by money simbol) like search and " USD " (space, USD, space) like replace. It is applied, but it is not saved to apply on another occasion, having to repeat the operation by keyboard. Something is wrong. Before it worked fine. EDIT: Fixed in 1.6.7, works perfect now!
- (2023-09-01) Don't do it: Does not memorize customizations using "$" symbol, something is wrong. Before it worked fine.
- (2023-08-31) Elvin Aslanov: Browsers need to have such feature by default, built-in.
- (2023-08-16) Volkan Kücük: it works when it has to change text in different columns, but when you have to save it, the changes are not saved. How do I solve it?
- (2023-08-11) Javier Iguana: Funciona bien. Sólo hay que volver a abrir el navegador después de instalarla.
- (2023-08-02) Oprah Hatparty: This used to be perfect for replacing text but today the update has made it stop working. Edit: It was fixed and works now. Thanks so much, this plugin saves me a lot of time!
- (2023-08-02) Rochelle Chumacera: We are perfectly using this in editing some lyrics. However, after it's been updated, we cannot remove all the punctuation marks which we don't have an issue with previously. Once we try to remove a comma or period at the end of each sentence, the font will change, and the format of the text as well. We've checked and unchecked all the possible boxes but it still does the same. This is only for removing those punctuation marks, other than that it's working fine.
- (2023-07-29) Евгений Жуков: После обновления ужасно работает!
- (2023-07-27) Kiber Russian: It stopped working after the update. For some reason they put the "replace all" button in a separate checkbox, it's awfully inconvenient. Does not save the last changes made, constantly resets the fields, you have to write them again. In general, they broke something that was working perfectly well, I'll have to look for an alternative.
- (2023-07-21) AJ Hempenius: Please make it possible for me to pay for the premium extension. It would save me sooo much time, and I would pay in a heartbeat, but it's just not working and incredibly frustrating. When I want to checkout it just says "Unable to proceed to checkout, please restart from beginning"
- (2023-07-12) Elliot Dillman: It's pretty unbelievable to me that in 2023 - Windows / Wordpress still doesn't have a reliable backend search and replace tool. This was working the first day I got it - and with absolutely no updates on any platform, has magically began to make my google chrome browswer crash. this is so unbearably annoying and is so detrimental to our workflow i cannot begin to explain.
- (2023-05-18) Teknologi Jempolan: this cannot be used in the blogger mode html editor. I hope this can be fixed
- (2023-05-05) Charlie L: doesn't work at all on Contentful
- (2023-03-03) H. Smith: It does exactly what I need. One powerful feature is the regular expressions capture groups ($1, $2). I did not see it mentioned in the help wiki but it is very useful. Often I find pages with phone numbers like xxx.xxx.xxxx where I need the format xxx-xxx-xxxx. Search and Replace does the trick effortlessly. It would be cool if there was a way to invoke the extension with a shortcut like Alt-R or something to execute the currently specified search and replace. Thanks for a great extension to increase productivity for many!
- (2023-02-17) Waldek Dalipski: Taka opcja powinna być natywnie wbudowana w Inspect Toola
- (2023-01-21) Cheryl: I wanted something which worked in the gutenberg wordpress editor and this works perfectly! Thank you.
- (2022-10-04) Tom Grello: Works for Jenkins! No more painstaking manual replacements. **If you are trying to use this extension on Jenkins, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE "Only change visible content?" ENABLED!** Maybe the developer should have this enabled by default? It seems many people are making that mistake.
- (2022-07-31) Adi Surani: Worked for Notion. Couldn't believe my eyes :)) Great. LE: Page gets stuck soon after, updates are not persisted (they end up deleted on refresh)
- (2022-07-22) David: La seule extension qui a vraiment répondu à mes besoins! J'avais besoin d'utiliser la fonction "Recherche et remplace" sur WordPress entre autres, pour corriger plusieurs paragraphes ou sections de texte à la fois. Le soucis avec WordPress, c'est que chaque paragraphe est un bloc de texte individuel, et toutes les extensions que j'ai pu trouver avant celle-ci m'obligeaient à sélectionner un paragraphe après l'autre pour pouvoir y modifier un (ou des) mot(s)... Celle-ci permet de modifier TOUS les paragraphes d'un coup, et aussi de paramétrer la recherche selon différents critères souhaités.
- (2022-07-06) Andrius “MB”: Works perfect, thank you.
- (2022-04-27) Beth Howk: My life would suck without this tool. I've tried SO MANY different Find&Replace tools for Chrome, but none have worked for "input fields" like this one has. Almost all of them only change what I can see (like if I no longer wanted to see the word 'Lakers' and wanted to see 'Clippers' instead). This will make an ACTUAL CHANGE to the input fields on the web forms I use for my job. The only trick (for me) is that in order for the forms to remember the change, I have to click in the box (or just hold down tab until it runs through every field on the page, which is usually quicker and lazier). Considering I have to make multiple changes on hundreds of pages, it's absolutely worth it. THANK YOU.
- (2022-03-17) Nikita Mikhailov: Works perfect! ty
- (2022-01-18) Rafael MARTINEZ: Muy sencillo de utilizar y cumple su cometido. Me ha venido genial para cambiar palabras concretas de mi plantilla de wordpress de una forma muy rápida. 100% recomendable.
- (2022-01-11) Caio Fernando Zimmermann Corrêa: Muito boa e útil
- (2021-10-19) Ami Y.: What's up with the new permissions? Manage apps, extensions and themes? What's that for? EDIT: New version with reduced permissions works well. Thanks!
- (2021-10-16) Mysterious User: extension began to steal passwords and other data?
- (2021-10-14) Daniel Linton: I used this extension -- and loved it -- for about a year. For some reason the latest version is asking for a bunch of new permissions ( Manage your apps, extensions, and themes ) that are getting flagged, quite properly, as security issue. It wasn't broken -- why 'fix' it by requiring all these permissions? I'll give it a couple of weeks before I come back and mark it as abusive...
- (2021-09-20) Nikki Stork: Does not work in Canva (where I downloaded it for). The words will be replaced but after that the page crashes and I can not do anything. I can not click on anything, I can not save my file. I need to refresh my page to make Canva working again, resulting in the replacements the extension made not being saved. Disappointed
- (2021-09-04) AM ZO: works better than others
- (2021-08-03) 王为: 安装插件前已打开的页面需要刷新一下
- (2021-03-28) José Romero: Thank you! I just save an hour of work!
- (2020-12-19) Gulshan Kumar: Awesome!
- (2020-09-29) Ville de Plaisir: Parfait pour l'édition de textes dans le navigateur
- (2020-08-26) Kevin Liu: It works! It's great but the button does not work after replacing
- (2020-07-27) ray tomy: Input type="text"のみ置換したいができない。表示上では置換されるが、フォームを送信してリロードすると元のままで書き換えられていない。意味不明。
- (2020-04-14) Venkat Doshi: I like this extension. It works though it takes some time to get used to or you might end up with some really odd words. I mainly use it to read novels online. I would like it if you could add an "always change" function "to site" without having to manually input the changes each time a new page(in my case, a chapter) is loaded. Something similar to AdBlock.
- (2020-02-28) Ori FL: Cool et fonctionne
- (2020-01-28) Cédric: Used it once, erased all my code. I'm not going to browse the doc and ask for support for such a basic function.
- (2020-01-08) Marco Tulio Lizandro: Sensacional! Quebrou um baita dum galho.
- (2019-12-17) Wilhelm Rahn: Very simple but it gets the job done. It would be nice that it scrolled to the text that is currently replacing, or that it counted the total results. It's not fool proof, as you can break something if you're not careful, bu at least it works (unlike other, more complex extensions that not always do).
- (2019-12-11) Юрий Шпак: Не работает.
- (2019-11-14) HonorisCreed: It replaces parts of words, for example: Replacing he with she, it would replace father with fatsher. This addon is useless.
- (2019-09-23) 谁丑谁怀孕: 不好用，替换了之后页面的按钮就点不了了
- (2023-11-12, v:1.7.4) 骸骨: Replace does not work
Please fix the replacements no longer work.
- (2023-08-02, v:1.6.5) 骸骨: Page freezes
Please fix the page freeze when doing replacements on sites that use atwiki!
- (2023-08-01, v:1.6.3) 骸骨: I'd like to be able to highlight the replacement location or change it in the settings
I would like to change the setting so that the text is not highlighted if it is still there before replacement.
- (2023-07-27, v:1.6.2) Erick Zahid: Last version worked better
I'm having issues with replacing information, last version with separated buttons for replace and replace all worked better and faster.

It doesn't remember the first paste you put on Search For input and let you start again which is a pain when you have to copy and paste something from the browser and go back and paste to Replace with. This is a recurring problem now.
- (2023-06-14, v:1.5.5) Vladimir Onupko: history needs to be cleared
This question has been asked before, but it's repeated. Could you help with this? Now you need to clear the history before each use of the application. If the history is not cleared, the old values remain. Can you help with this?
- (2023-06-08, v:1.5.4) Viktoriia Tolochko: data disappears in entry window
This question has been asked before, but it happened again. Could you please help with it? "When I use the data entry window after filling (Search) I need to copy other data from the page, the filling window disappears and after opening the filling window, the data that I entered in the field (Search) disappears, how can to fix this?"

- (2022-04-27, v:1.4.7) Beth Howk: Multiple Find/Replace rows?
Would it be possible to add a feature to allow us to use multiple find/replace rows in order? I use this a lot in my job for replacing dates (~300 pages, 6 different dates on each page). It would be super helpful if there was a way to input all the find/replace changes at once and click a button instead of having to re-enter each set of changes on every page.
- (2022-02-21, v:1.4.6) Dinky Street: Used for years but just stopped working!
Hi there, I've been using this to change ticket dates in my Wordpress plugin called Event Espresso since 2019 but I've just gone to use it today and it's not working? Any ideas please as otherwise I'm going to have to manually change every date on multiple ticket types! It's also not working anywhere else?? I've tried removing it and adding it again to my Chrome. Thanks Louise

Hello, I am trying to use the extension to modify a page that is built with elementor on Wordpress. When I check Only change visible content? is changing the words but not saving them. If I un check it breaks the code, and the content dissapears. Could you please help us with this? The website is locksmiths.ltd

I used to enjoy this find and replace extension and all was good using it in magento, but now after updates it doesnt work as good as before. After I do the replace the magento page gets bugged and cant click on different tabs of it
- (2021-10-13, v:1.4.0) Martin Wittmann: Please explain this extensions permissions
Can you explain why this extension needs the following permissions? * Read your browsing history * Manage your apps, extensions, and themes Why are these permissions required in order to search and replace in the current browser window? And in the most recent version, the permissions have expanded... Can you clarify why?

- (2020-12-31, v:1.3.9) Benoit Seize: unsaved changes
I tried using your app to batch edit fields in Oberlo (shopify add on). The changes appear but, unfortunately, are not saved. I think it would be enough for the application to generate an enter code for each modification. But, as it is, the application is unusable. Happy new yrar !
- (2020-12-28, v:1.3.9) Sindre Fjellestad: Compability in wordpress
Having trouble with getting this plugin to work with input fields in wordpress, is this possible?
- (2020-06-17, v:1.3.9) Harman G: Replace all
Used to work great. When I replace all, and replace all again a 2nd time the software remembers what was initially changed and changes it again. For instance. Search for 123 and replace with ABC. Now if I save and add 123 somewhere else in the text and search 123 and replace with EDF, it will change all of the ABC text to EDF, even though it no longer matches.

- (2020-01-15, v:1.3.9) Amber M. Smith, CFISD Curriculum Coach: teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder
Using the activity builder in Desmos. Find and replace will be awesome if it could work to change lots of coding fast. I'm creating a custom activity using the computation layer. On a slide, I've clicked a cog wheel to open the coding. I'm trying to do a find and replace. Highlight everything, click your tool. If I don't select text input, it almost works. It replaces everything but then I can't EXIT out of the popup to save the edit. It keeps all my text highlighted but I can't deactivate or close the screen. I can't click the button at top right to close the screen either. Refreshing causes the replace to not be saved.
- (2019-11-13, v:1.3.9) Alberto Sisí: Highlight input values
Good afternoon. First of all I want to thank you for your Chrome extension, it works great!! But I would like to ask you if there is any way to highlight keywords on input values. For example a field of a form. If so, I would be very grateful if you would let me know. I have installed many similar extensions and none have this function, so it would be a great option. Thank you very much for your attention in this matter. Best regards, Alberto
- (2019-10-21, v:1.3.9) help?
When I use the plugin it replaces the word I need, but the change is not permanent. Is there a sep I am missing?
- (2019-10-17, v:1.3.9) Ben Giglione: Numeric Replacement
I wanted to do a numeric regex find and replace, but the only way the extension would let me remember the number in the $1 replace line is if I phrased it in the find line as (0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9). (0-9) and [0-9] didn't seem to work in that regard. Do I have to type out that big long line every time I want to find and replace a number, or is there a shorter way to phrase it that $1 will actually remember in the replace line?
- (2019-08-16, v:1.3.9) Devin Andres: Find and Replace
I am trying to use this on my go daddy web store. I select find and replace, text box only option but it does not seem to work. Any suggestions? Thanks Devin
- (2019-08-10, v:1.3.9) Eric Suen: Doesn't SAVE after replacing!!
The function implemented by this extension is very much needed by me now, but unfortunately, I tried the replacement function many times and it seems to have been replaced, but when I click save, the text in the form is still the original, and there is no Replace, I hope that developers can solve this problem, thank you very much
- (2019-07-11, v:1.3.9) Vladimir Volovich: Add an option to skip changing hidden form fields
The extension has an option "Input fields only", but when doing the replace, it also changes the hidden fields, which may not be desirable in some cases. Please add an option to avoid modifying the hidden form fields.
