We just launched our search and replace tool and it’s now available in the MyKinsta dashboard for all clients. This was a highly requested feature, as it helps make bulk updates on your site a breeze!
As many of you migrate your sites to HTTPS, this now allows you to easily update your hard-coded HTTP URLs in the database (recommended over using a plugin) without ever having to contact our support team or worry about MySQL queries. We of course are available 24×7 if you need assistance, but we know a lot of you prefer to do things yourself if you can. ?
The search and replace tool is available in the dashboard under the “Tools” section of your site.
There are many scenarios in which this tool can save you a lot of time! Here are a few additional examples of how you might use it:
- Moving site from www to non-www URLs or vice versa
- Changing to a new domain name
- Updating old shortcodes, content, strings of text
Make sure to check out our search and replace tutorial for a more in-depth walk through and example.
