Universal sitewide URL find and replace

Post by pacstar » Wed May 22, 2019 6:04 pm

Is there a way to do a sitewide "find and replace" for a link to a URL?

For example I want to change " https://www.page.com/subpage1.htm to https://www.page.com/main/subpage1.htm " across the entire site?

Or, at least is there a way to find a link and where it is used across the site?

Thanks

Did you try 'Global Replace' in the tools menu?

Ah, yes. That seemed to work, I just forgot to select URL from the drop down menu.

But it doesn't let me type in the existing URL I want to change, I have to select from a drop down list. I see that it's gonna be an issue if the URL is too long to see in the drop down window. ????

Global Replace should list all the URLs in your project so there is no need to type it manually.

Pablo,
Yeah, I figured that out. I just mentioned that if its a long URL, it gets cut off in the drop down window so you cannot read what the URL is to be able to select it. Can a long URL in the drop down be set to appear on mouse over???

Other than that, it worked perfectly.

The drop down list is a standard Window component, unfortunately it cannot display long items.

Pablo, now I am not the same level of programming as yourself, I do understand Pascal and VB though. Could it be possible to use/add the likes of a tooltip to each item in a combobox?, so that on hover it will show a abbreviated/short description of the item. As mentioned I am not on the same level as you just running a idea pass you.

Have you tried first maximising the initial Global Replace window?

Unfortunately this functionality is not available in C++

But WWBman suggestion may be helpful. You can resize the window so the dropdown list will be wider.

Thanks Pablo for your reply. I did read that on a search after posting, WWBman suggestion should work.

Pablo,

Is there a way to add the ability to just copy and paste or type in the URL into the form without the dropdown force?
