Is it possible to multi select tables in one database?

No, not possible with DB Replacer. You can only search and replace in 1 table at a time.

To do replaces in multiple tables you will have to repeat the replace process for each table.

Another method is to execute your own custom sql command on your database directly, via phpMyAdmin for instance.

How can I replace empty or NULL values

You can match empty, NULL or 0000-00-00 date values by simply placing NULL in the search area.

How can I replace the entire value

You can match the entire value of a field by placing a single asterisk * in the search area.

Installation

How can I install/upgrade it?

You can either install DB Replacer by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

Note: When updating DB Replacer, you do not need to uninstall it first. The package will update all the files automatically.

Keep in mind that when you update to a major new version (or uninstall first), you might lose some configuration settings.

For detailed information, please see the Guide

DB Replacer won't install...

If you have problems installing DB Replacer, please try the manual installation process as described here: docs.joomla.org/Installing_an_extension

How can I uninstall it?

You can either uninstall DB Replacer by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

If you no longer use any NoNumber extensions, you can also uninstall the NoNumber Framework plugin by using the Joomla! core extension manager.

Where can I download earlier versions?

You can find old versions here: Download old versions

Note: Please note that I am unable to provide support on old versions!

Note: If you are logged in - and have an active subscription - you also have access the old Pro versions.

Joomla 1.5 version

To get a version compatible with Joomla 1.5, download v2.2.2 from the old versions.

PHP 5.2 compatibility

Uptodate versions all need PHP 5.3 or higher. To get an old version that installs on php 5.2 setups, look for one before the version that says 'Removed ability to install on setups with php 5.2 or lower' (around May 2012).

How can I downgrade to an earlier version?

If for some reason you need to install an older version, it is best to uninstall the extension first.

You will also have to uninstall the NoNumber Framework system plugin.

After that you can simply install the older version zip file using the Joomla! installer.

Note: Please note that I am unable to provide support on old versions!

NoNumber Framework

What is the NoNumber Framework?

The NoNumber Framework is a Joomla! system plugin that is installed along with every NoNumber extension.

This plugin contains all the common functions and language strings that the NoNumber extensions use.

If you use any NoNumber extensions, this plugin must be installed and published. They will not function correctly or they will not function at all without it.

What is the NoNumber Elements plugin?

The NoNumber Elements system plugin is no longer used and has been replaced by the NoNumber Framework.

If you have been using NoNumber extensions for a long time you may still have this Elements plugin installed.

The NoNumber Elements plugin can safely be uninstalled IF your NoNumber extensions are up-to-date.
