Search and replace text

Is there a search and replace text feature in webflow yet?


Here is my site Read-Only: LINK
(how to share your site Read-Only link)

Unfortunately, there is not such a feature. What I do is export the site, search the HTML text to identify the pages and locations of use. I then visit them in the designer to manually change the content. For CMS pages I can do the same in the CSV’s I export.

You could use the site search, but elements can be hidden, making it possible you can miss something.

There is a wishlist item that could vote for. It could use some love.

Well that’s a bummer. I’ll add it to the wishlist. Thanks for the reply.

If you’re comfortable coding, there is an API reference for CMS that is pretty straightforward and will let you do what you’re talking about: Webflow CMS API Reference

For instance, the following vanilla python code (written in python 3.9) grabs all the collections on my site, which I can then update however I want:

import requests
from os import environ

API_KEY = environ.get("WEBFLOW_API_KEY")
api = "https://api.webflow.com"
resp = requests.get(
    f"{api}/sites",
    headers={"Accept-Version": "1.0.0", "Authorization": f"Bearer {API_KEY}"},
)
sites = resp.json()
my_site = {}
for site in sites:
    if site.get("shortName", "") == "something":
        my_site = site
        break

my_site_id = my_site.get("_id", "")
resp = requests.get(
    f"{api}/sites/{my_site_id}/collections",
    headers={"Accept-Version": "1.0.0", "Authorization": f"Bearer {API_KEY}"},
)

I’m regularly faced with this problem. Many of my clients are in the medical industry, which has continually changing restrictions on the content, keywords, disclaimer language, etc. Last week “urgent care” was great, this week it’s not allowed.

If you’re looking to quickly find references, and your site is well-indexed, Google can help you do some quick digging;

Two search features of use are the site: qualifier which lets you target your domain, and the +"..." which means this exact text required.

site:webflow.com +"SEO"

It’s good for a quick first attack.

@webdev thanks for the Wishlist item. Added my vote.
