When saving a template with a syntax error, EE will issue a warning, with a link to a Find & Replace utility.

enter image description here

This utility is super handy, but only seems to be available when there is a problem (usually an open-ended tag pair). Is there any way to access this, normally?

I can't seem to find anything about it in the documentation.

This utility is not available outside the location where you are seeing it.


Yes, there is. The search and replace tool can be found at Tools > Data > Search and Replace. The available options are:

  • Site Preferences
  • Channel Entry Titles
  • Channel Fields
  • Templates
  • I am aware of that. It's not what I'm looking for. The utility in the template editor has Find, Find Next, Replace, and Replace All options, whereas the Search and Replace is a blanket Replace All.
