    Default Find/replace

    Question, is there a way to use find/replace on links? What I want to do is in my navigation bars which have hundreds of links want to change http to https, very time consuming to do by hand but if some way to use find/replace would only have to do 51 times once for each State. I have already used htaccess to force everything ho https but would like to change the links.

    Just a shot in the dark, but can you edit the html document? This is where the link will appear.

    Unfortunately it will need to be done every time you make a change.

    But Acorn will probably have something that can work inside Xara.

    Chris that is the problem Doesn't work on nav bars, was looking for a workaround of which Gary just gave me one. Opened html in notepad++ and did find/replace worked like a charm thank you Gary, wish I had thought of that on my own. Every time I have a problem one of you have a simple solution, wish I had half the brains that people on here have the only advice I have been able to give anyone is to refer someone to a thread in which Egg gave me the solution to the same problem. Anyhow thanks to all and Happy New Year

    I see what I did now. You wrote it as 'THE' find and replace, and I read it as 'A' find and replace.

    Also, remembering where a previous answer is is being very helpful. I can't remember what I had for breakfast, and I'm still eating it.

    You may still be eating breakfast but it is 7:30pm here just having dinner. As for Gary worked like a charm but created at was easily solved, when I replaced http with https it took things that were already https and made them httpss so had to go back and tell it to take httpss and make it https. Simple but sure am glad I ght it or it would have made all my links like google unusable. Thanks Gary as it is sure a lot easier than having to change every link in xara by hand.
