    Hi. I saw this question asked before on this forum but I can't find it or the answer so please forgive me if this is a repeat. Here is my question.

    I have thousands of PLR articles and the tools to "drip feed" them into my blogs. The problem is that nearly ALL the text articles are in a format that is useless to me unless I go in and manually edit each and every one of them.

    I"m sure most of you have seen this before. The article looks something like this:

    Tittle:
    "Article Title"

    Word count:
    "some Number"

    Summary:
    "blablahblah..."

    Body:
    "start of article"

    Now before I can bulk upload these I have to edit out ALL that garbage from each article so it just looks like this:

    "article Title"
    "start of article"

    I heard there was a tool that lets you go into a folder where all your articles are and batch edit all that stuff out. I am DESPERATE for that tool. Please advise.

    I don't remember where I found it but a program called Windows Search & Replace by Funduc Software may be of use to you.

    Get a copy of Alias Find and Replace 1.2.0
    It was a free program
    It allows you to find and replace multiple strings of text and replace them with information of your choice.
    It works on folders and subfolders.
