Removing links from posts in wordpress
Hi to all,
I am not very good with mysql so i need some help.
I am trying to remove some specific links from my wordpress blog. I have a lot of outgoing links to several domains and i want to remove just links to one of them. For example all links that lead to dontneedlink.com or start with dontneedlink.com/(some child page)
I already try
UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = REPLACE (
'Item to replace here',
Replacement text here');
But this is not god for me because I have a lot of key words and there is a lot of combinations.
So I need some kind of query to recognize my links that include dontneedlink.com and to remove href text and leave keyword untouched.
<a href=”http:// dontneedlink.com”>Test</a> -> Test
<a href=”http:// dontneedlink.com”>Test Again</a> -> Test Again
<a href=”http:// dontneedlink.com/childpage”>Test Again 2</a> -> Test Again 2
Is this possible at all?
This would save me a lot of time instead to go from one to another post and remove manually.
Thanks in advance!
