CM Search and Replace (CMSR) - Using the Plugin
Using the Plugin

How the Plugin Works
The plugin matches the replacements rules defined in the plugin settings against the content just before it is being displayed. Saying this it means that the changes are not being done on the database and are only shown once the plugin is working and the specific replacement rule is active.
The plugin is using the content filters. In case they are not activated on a specific post or page or part of it the search and replace rules will not work.
