Description: Since pmwiki-websites enjoy huge prosperity, they grow bigger and bigger. It is not easy at all to handle changes within a pmwiki. That function I liked most in Dreamweaver was the search-and-replace a string with a desisired one.

This function for obvious reasons should be tied closely to user rights. The default should be only the admin, who may use it.

To envoke it, I imagine a form with 2 fields (search, replace) and the usual clickable fields (case sensitive, only whole words, etc.) If we cannot apply this function one day, it will become a bottleneck for further development (at least with my wikis). I hope (because I am certainly unable to contribute to this solution, due lack of knowledge) that this will be picked up by somebody who recognizes this difficulty as I do. :-)
