WP Bulk Editor is not just a practical tool for doing mass editing tasks on your existing WordPress pages and posts. It can also be used to revitalize all of your outdated sites.
If you have old affiliate hyperlinks pointing to non-working destinations, for example, you can quickly replace those useless URLs with active links.

You can change the name of the departed contact person with the new contact person’s name, and do the same for any email addresses, phone numbers, etc. You can even duplicate posts with different city names for publishing on different sites!
