Batch Search and Replace

Project Description

Introduction

The collective.searchandreplace product is a Plone Add-on designed to find and replace text in Plone content objects. It looks in title, description, and document text, and since version 7 it looks in all text fields. It operates over single or multiple Plone content objects and can show a preview of changes as well as immediately perform them.

Features include:

  • being able to control searching in subfolders
  • matching based on case sensitivity/insensitivity
  • maximum number of results
  • fast search using the catalog by default
  • disable the fast search to be able to search and replace raw html tags, for example replace <strong>text</strong> by <em>text</em>

Compatibility

From collective.searchandreplace version 5.0, we are compatible with Plone 4.3 and 5.0.

The collective.searchandreplace product was initally built for use with eduCommons by Novell, inc, later improved by EnPraxis. It is currently maintained by Maurits van Rees. Plone 5 support added by Gagaro.

New features:

  • add item here

Bug fixes:

  • Do not use base object when replacing [Gagaro]

7.1.1 (2016-08-02)

Bug fixes:

7.1 (2016-07-20)

New features:

  • Allow overriding the permission that is checked on an object. By default this is the Modify portal content permission. But when you have setup a workflow that does not allow editing published content, for example when you require doing changes with check-out/check-in from Iterate, then you may want to use a different permission. You can then override the utility in your own code. [maurits]
  • Save a new version in the repository, when CMFEditions is enabled for the changed type. [maurits]

7.0.1 (2016-07-19)

Bug fixes:

  • Synced translations, updated Dutch. [maurits]
  • Do not fail when an object from the catalog cannot be found. Print a warning in the logs. [maurits]

7.0 (2016-07-19)

Breaking changes:

  • Removed ISearchReplaceable behavior. This was introduced in version 6. Kept the interface for backwards compatibility, but it is not used anymore. Instead, by default all types are searched and replaced. You can configure this in the new control panel. There you can restrict the types that are searched, if needed.

    There are upgrade steps to install the new configuration options, add the control panel, and remove the behavior from existing dexterity types. Before you run the upgrade steps, you may see a warning and an error once when accessing the site in Plone 5:

    • WARNING plone.dexterity.schema No behavior registration found for behavior named: “collective.searchandreplace.interfaces.ISearchReplaceable” - trying fallback lookup…”
    • ERROR plone.dexterity.schema Error resolving behavior collective.searchandreplace.interfaces.ISearchReplaceable

    This should cause no troubles. This fixes issue https://github.com/collective/collective.searchandreplace/issues/25 [maurits]

New features:

  • Added option in form to use fast search. By default this is checked. This means we use the catalog, instead of waking up every object in the path. [maurits]
  • Search and replace in all text fields. Removed special cases for Description and Text/Body field: these are handled the same as other text fields now. TextLine fields and StringFields are ignored, except for the Title field. [maurits]
  • Ported tests to plone.app.testing. [maurits]
  • Added number of contents affected after a search. [Gagaro]

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed Travis (continuous integration) test setup for Plone 5. [maurits]
  • Minor code cleanup: pyflakes, pep8, sorting imports. [maurits]
  • Conditionally load zcml for dexterity behavior/profile and ATContentTypes. [maurits]
  • Added plone.resource to our requirements for our resources. [maurits]

6.0.4 (2016-03-23)

  • Show link to searchreplace form in parent folder when you are not viewing a folderish item. [maurits]
  • Add edit links in table. [Gagaro]
  • Keep table and form values when replacing. [Gagaro]
  • Add an option to limit the number of results shown. Indirectly this limits the number of matches to replace, because matches that are not shown, cannot be selected for replacement. [Gagaro]
  • Add a setting to limit the number of characters shown before and after. [Gagaro]
  • Disable columns in searchreplaceform view. [Gagaro]
  • Include toggleSelect for Plone 5. [Gagaro]

6.0.3 (2016-02-15)

  • Allowed replacing with an empty string. Fixes #13. [maurits]
  • Fix ensure we get the attributes of the base object in _getRawText. [Gagaro]

6.0.2 (2016-02-08)

  • In SearchAndReplace.pot added the ability to translate configure.zcml , searchreplacetable.pt. Added Russian translation.

6.0.1 (2016-01-16)

  • Added Russian translations. [serge73]

6.0 (2015-11-30)

  • Added a behavior to add ISearchReplaceable on Dexterity content types. Also added a profile to set this behavior on some content types. [Gagaro]
  • Only search and replace contents with the ISearchReplaceable interface. [Gagaro]

5.1 (2015-10-27)

  • Required plone.app.textfield in setup.py. [maurits]

4.2 (2015-06-22)

  • Nicer message when immediately replacing all text without preview. [maurits]

4.1 (2015-05-05)

  • Add Travis badge. [maurits]

4.0 (2015-04-30)

  • Check if the user has the Modify portal content permission for each item. Ignore items for which this is not the case. [maurits]
  • Add separate permission for showing the action. This makes it easier to restrict usage of Search and Replace if wanted. By default the same roles have this permission as for the standard ‘Modify portal content’ permission. Added upgrade steps for this. Permission title is: ‘collective.searchandreplace: Use Search And Replace’. [maurits]
  • Fix i18n. Use SearchAndReplace domain everywhere. Update po files. [maurits]
  • Hide ‘search subfolders’ option for items that are not folderish or a default page. [davisagli]
  • Also support ‘search subfolders’ for default pages. [davisagli]
  • Use the unicode value stored in the Archetypes BaseUnit to avoid UnicodeDecodeErrors when the BaseUnit’s encoding is not utf8. [davisagli]
  • Enable searching the entire site. [davisagli]
  • Cleanup. Fix tests. Add buildout for testing with Plone 4.3. [maurits]
  • Include permissions from CMFCore, to avoid possible startup problems. [maurits]
  • Make the plugin appears in quick installer [ivanteoh]
  • Support unicode [ivanteoh]
  • Fix the total of replaced instances [ivanteoh]
