question about replacement

Post by DustyCorner »

I purchased TextPipe in order to replace one part of a file with another.
I have a large website with approximately 5,500 different files, total size 1.4 gigs
I had the "Google Search Engine" on my site and found that it was not effective for the size of the site. I found a different search engine program and really does the job very well.
I would like to replace one HTML script with another.
I have tried several times in several different ways to do this and each time it does not work. Either it deals with only one web page at a time-which would be a pain for the size of the site or it does nothing
I know that I am doing something wrong but do not have a clue.

My level of webpage design is low-I ended redoing this site after the original web designer died.

I am learning but there are gaps in my understanding
Thank you

Hi there,

Most likely your search text does not exactly match the text in each file. You could try recoding this as an EasyPattern matches, including

[1+whitespace] whereever there is a newline or space.

You could also examine files it fails on and include extra search/replace filters to cover those too.
