Hello everyone:

How to use the "Find and Replace" function in Dreamweaver to delete in batches the five groups of tags (including their contents) that are highlighted in the bottom right of the html with a total of more than 8,000.

Thank you very much.

Assuming your code resembles this:

Advanced tab (see screenshot).

Short answer: Do it dynamically with scripts. 

 

When a website exceeds 50 pages, it's time to use server-side solutions and databases.

Big thanks to Nancy O'Shea, just tried it out and it works (fig 001).
But I have a question, can these five tag groups only be deleted one at a time?
Because I added all 5 search conditions together and executed 25 files in the folder in batches, the result showed that nothing could be found (Figure 002).
How should this be done? Thank you.

The attributes listed in your F&R panel don't jive in any way with those in your DOM panel.

 

You must be very precise or less selective about what you're searching for.

 

Open a document. 

Test your search query on the Current Document before moving on to more documents.

I get it,thanks a lot. Can I ask another question? How to reverse the above situation? Let's say I have a new tab group (including its content), how do I batch add it in a folder containing over 8000 .html files? Thank you.
