Search for text in on a webpage and replace it with different text.

Image from store Search and Replace
Description from store ---------------------------------------------------------PLEASE NOTE--------------------------------------------------------- 1. Refresh the page or restart chrome before using. 2. The popup will not stay open if you click elsewhere. This is a feature of Chrome. 3. Search and replace terms are remembered between popup closing and opening for the current tab only. 4. `Match Case`, `Regular expressions`, `input fields only` currently not supported in Gmail. 5. Please read the Help page if you are having issues or ask for support. This extension allows you to search for text anywhere on the page and replace it with different text. The search can take case into consideration and can be limited to input fields only. It could be used to quickly correct a form where the wrong information has been entered multiple times You can also search using regular expressions. For example, searching for one(one|two) will match either "oneone" or "onetwo". The match that was caught by the parentheses can then be referenced in the replace field as $1. So if we had the text "onetwo", search for one(one|two), and replace with $1, the result is "two" as this is what was matched in the parentheses ()..

  • (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: 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) VKJD: 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) 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) 9uj as: 不好用,替换了之后页面的按钮就点不了了
  • (2019-09-16) Brandon Pittser: Doesn't work. Tried it on critterdb.com with "Input fields only?" checked, and while it "looked" like it replaced the text in the input fields, those changes weren't actually reflected anywhere. It is, therefore, worthless. That particular site has a live preview of changes to the input fields and it shows that there are no changes. Saving results in none of the "changes" being saved. Add-on needs to do some kind of action to actually edit the field so it's recognized as having been edited or something. The add-on clearing all input fields if it's attempted to be used without "input fields only?" checked is also a real problem that shouldn't ever exist.
  • (2019-09-11) Alex C. Green: Very useful extension. Thank you!!! But personally, I miss two buttons: "next" and "previous". They would help to skip items that are unnecessary to change. That is, for custom editing.
  • (2019-08-27) rob papesch: Still works great in 2019! Fixed up the mess on this page to something more readable :) https://www.princeton.edu/~hos/mike/transcripts/thompson.htm
  • (2019-05-26) Boeloe van Boeloefontein: Doesn't do shite in Wattpad.
  • (2019-05-13) Владислав Климов: После замены перестаёт работать скрипты и формы админки на некоторых сайтах.
  • (2019-04-15) Marketing PM: Does not work with Text Area, sometimes works with text fields, usually crashes and clears all fields instead of replacing the values.
  • (2019-03-05) It is exactly what I need
  • (2019-01-21) Kim Hopwood: Rubbish just will not work plus the pop-up doesn't resize properly meaning the tick boxes are not displayed...
  • (2018-12-27) Roar og Jorunn GJ: Virket ikke. Siden gikk i lås og ingen tilbakemelding på om søk og erstatt ble utført
  • (2018-12-23) Sara Primeau: Works great for me. Using it for 2 years.
  • (2018-06-07) Kiran Mehr: It worked! The other extensions didn't on the website I was using! AMazing
  • (2018-05-25) Jeffrey Gehrung: I have been using this on some complex Drupal forms with a mix of text and text area input fields. It has allowed me to apply global edits (simultaneously on different input field types) saving me an incredible amount of time. Also used when editing lengthy WIKI pages to make global alterations. Works just as described.
  • (2018-03-13) Jamal Morelli: Tried several times to use this with Oasis Sandstorm for text editing. It ended up erasing / collapsing everything typed on the page. I'm removing it now. However, I wish the developer luck as no one has made a good find and replace for browsers yet.
  • (2018-02-20) Human: Не работает
  • (2018-01-29) Анна Смоловик: This extention save hours of my life. Great!
  • (2017-10-31) RudeGuyGames: It does the job, but it does not seem to support all text areas. It certainly did not do anything with the text in the Wordpress.com editor.
  • (2017-09-14) Paul Schratz: Didn't work for me. It found and replaced the text in some places, but not others.
  • (2017-09-13) Pontus Gustavsson: Perfect when working in html code, saves me a lot of time! thanks :)
  • (2017-08-21) Alan McGinnis: This tool has saved me hours of work. It works really great for WordPress. I prepend labels to page names and then use this tool to remove the label once I have added the page to the menu. Really useful for multilingual sites. Definitely be sure to check the inputs only option when you are working with this tool in WordPress.
  • (2017-08-10) William Carlos: It worked fine for me, please keep updating
  • (2017-07-28) Sergio Escobés: Busca y reemplaza, pero después los formularios no guardan el texto cambiado.
  • (2017-07-13) Steve Private: Great concept; would love to see a keyboard shortcut feature as well as to avoid future newbie heart attacks, when searching through list makers like simplenote, it's important to only check of input fields not all or else you'll get an updated blank field that Ctrl+z will not be able to undo. Luckily in my case for Simplenote, a refresh worked.

  • (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!

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

  • (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 !

  • (2020-06-17, 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?

  • (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

  • (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.
