Whether you run a small business or a company blog, there is quite a lot of content you can write about. In no time at all, you could find hundreds of posts published on your site … especially if you run an e-commerce site with loads of items.
(How do you bulk edit hundreds of WordPress posts?)
WordPress Bulk Editing Plugin
What happens if, let’s suppose, after a period of time, you have loads of published posts on your site and find that you have to replace a word, sentence or URL that has been added to many posts?

Thankfully, if you don’t want to edit code, there is a plugin that lets you change elements in your content throughout your WP posts and pages without having to open mySQL databases or mess around with web server files.

“Editing my WordPress pages and posts truly never was this easy!” Tim Jenkins, large blog owner.
WPBulkEditor is not just useful for doing bulk search and replace functions on your existing WP pages and posts. You can also use it to bring old WordPress sites up to date.
If you have old affiliate links pointing to non-existing pages, for example, you can easily replace these old URLs with working hyperlinks.
Here’s another useful tip: Let’s say that you end all posts on your company site with a call to action that includes asking visitors to contact such and such a person (e.g. “To request a brochure call Maria on 1234-567890”) and this person leaves your team. You can change the name of the departed colleague with the new contact person’s name, and do the same for their email addresses, telephone numbers, etc. You can take this concept further and duplicate posts with different city names for publishing on different websites!
