Find Replace Text In Links

Post by Avens » Tue Nov 13, 2018 2:15 pm

My site has a large number of links (within text boxes) which I need to change from http to https.
Rather than doing this manually I was wondering if there's a way to do this more efficiently.

I was hoping that a find/replace feature might be found in the 'page html' feature, but it appears to be non-editable.

Maybe you can use 'Global Replace' in the tool menu?

Unfortunately this doesn`t work... I can find replace text, but not the underlying links.

Similarly changing the URL's has to be done manually - this would actually be a good solution for me if the URL to change from the dropdown was repeated in the 'new link' box, but as presented the new link has to be typed in manually, which in my case would take a long time.
Even a copy paste from the first dropdown would help, but this isn't possible.

(a new feature discovered if nothing else!)

I'm sorry, in that case I do not have a standard solution.

Thanks anyway... I know WYSIWYG isn`t an HTML editor and don`t often need it to be, but very occasionally the ability to manually modify source code prior to export would be really useful.. (even at users own risk?)

That will not be possible.
The HTML code does not exist until you publish/preview the page.
