    Hi,
    I am looking for a back-end (site wise) search plugin for one of my WordPress website. I've like 130 pages and almost all pages share a portion of same content so whenever I have to change some text I've to manually update all pages. What I want to do is to search for terms/text in pages and custom post types and replace all the text in a single go instead of updating each page.

    A perfect example would be 'Search for abc in all documents/files and replace with xyz'

    Hi AnotherOne

    Pretty sure that this is what you are looking for: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-regex/

    Easy to use: Install, activate - open the dropdown "Tools" - select "Search Regex" - Search and Replace to your liking...

    cheers olystyle

    After watching this thread for more than 10 days (with no reply) I removed it from the subscribed list and today while searching for another thread I got here and found your reply.
    Thank you for the link. I'll try that plugin and let you know.

    Thanks & rep given for helping me out.

    Search Regex is great but it's not for searching in custom post types :(
    Any plugin for custom post types?
