View Demo | Buy Now

The first thing you will need to do is LOGIN to csFind-N-Replace (see screenshot to the right).

When you installed the script you selected a username and password. Type that username and password into the appropriate fields and click LOGIN to csFind-N-Replace to enter the script management.

To reset the username and password refer to the script README file for instructions. Follow the same instructions used to change the username and password to look up the username and password if you happen to forget what they are.

csFind-N-Replace Management

When you first login to csFind-N-Replace you are taken to the MANAGE page (see screenshot to the right).

There are ten primary functions to this script:

  • SEARCH THROUGH FILES WITH THESE EXTENSIONS
  • CURRENT WORKING DIRECTORY
  • INCLUDE SUBDIRECTORIES
  • FIND WHAT
  • MATCH CASE
  • REGULAR EXPRESSION
  • REPLACE WITH
  • MAKE BACKUP
  • TEST
  • SEARCH REPORT

SEARCH THROUGH FILES WITH THESE EXTENSIONS
Specify the file extensions you wish to have the script open and search through. Separate each extension using a comma. You DO NOT need to add the "." in the file extension.

CURRENT WORKING DIRECTORY
The current working directory is the first directory that will be searched through. You can change this directory by pressing the "Change Directory" button. This will open the directory navigation tool. Select the directory you want to set as the working directory and click the Set Directory button.

You can also use this tool to view the source of files on the server. As you are cruising through the server you will see the files listed with a "View Source" link next to it. Click this link to open a popup that will contain the source of the file.

INCLUDE SUBDIRECTORIES
Specify this option to allow the script to crawl the subdirectories that are contained in the current working directory.

FIND WHAT
Use the text field to specify the block of text you wish to search for.

MATCH CASE
This will force the script to match edit only occurrences with matching cases.

REGULAR EXPRESSION
This option allows advanced users to specify Regular Expressions in the search field. This extends the power of the script exponentially.

REPLACE WITH
This is the text field that will be used to replace the text specified in the "Find What" field.

MAKE BACKUP
This will force the script to create backup files of all the files that are modified. The files are copied as "filename.ext.bak"

TEST
Use this to "audit" the execution of the script. This DOES NOT actually edit the files. You will still be presented with a full report of occerrences.

SEARCH REPORT
The search report indicated the number of files that were searched, it specifies the number of occurrences that are present within these files. It also specifies the total number of files that were edited.

The body of the report lists each file and occurrences within each file. The files that have been edited are listed in the body first, followed by the files that have been searched but not edited.
