Implemented Item Content Find / Replace


Staff member
This was funded by @alfa1 and donated back to the community.

As per title, there is a new Showcase admin tool "Item content find / replace" that does the same exact thing as the popular "Post Content Find / Replace", but for Showcase content.


The main interface is the same as the "Post content find / replace" except searches Showcase message content (Items [including the message fields for sections 2-6], Item Updates, Comments and Reviews).


As you can see in this screenshot, the search found matches for 2 Items, 2 Item Updates, a Comment and a Review. You can either click on the IDs (which links you to the content) so that you can manually handle each specific content that has been found OR you can check the "Save changes" check box and click [Proceed] button, which will then perform the replace dynamically (again, works the same as the Post Content Find / Replace).


  1. The system will not check that your regular expression is valid, or that it matches. It will fall over if your expression does not compile, and it will simply not match anything if the logic is incorrect.
  2. There is no batch processing, so if you are attempting to replace something that occurs in a lot of items, sections, item updates, comments and reviews, this could be very slow and might time-out.
