Change Variable name and all instances

Recommended Posts

Say I've made a variable called $Hi and I've used it in 4 different documents because it ends up in a session and/or cookie but now I want to change that variable name to $bye and all the instances of it in the 4 documents. Is that possible in dreamweaver?

Yes, close all documents and hit CTRL-F (or command-f), you'll get the find window.


Starting at the top:

Find In- set this to the folder with all your stuff -  your local root folder (now called local site folder)

Set Search for - source code

Then just type in what you want to replace in the find box and what you want to replace it with in the replace box.


You may or may not want to check Match case.
