“Editing my WordPress pages and posts truly never was this easy!” Tim Jenkins, large blog owner.
WP BulkEditor is not only a practical tool for doing mass editing functions on your existing WP pages and posts. You can also use it to bring old WP sites up to date.
If you have many affiliate links pointing to dead destinations, for example, you can easily replace those old URLs with active links.
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. “For more information call Sandy on 1234-567890”) and this individual quits your business. You can replace the name of the departed employee with the new contact person’s details, and do the same thing for any email addresses, telephone numbers, etc. You can even recreate posts with different city names for publishing on different sites!
