Hi,

I have over 500 div tags with various page ids. 

Example:

<div id="page_5">
<div id="id5_1">
<div id="id5_2">
<div id="page_6">
<div id="id6_1">

What expression in the search and replace can I use to remove ALL div tags?

Thanks

You don't need regular expressions to remove <div> tags.

NOTE:  Back up your site folder before you perform a site wide Find & Replace because you cannot Undo this.

 

Use Ctrl + Shift + F.

Click on Advanced tab.  See screenshot.

This will remove ALL divsion tags from your markup.  To refine your search, Click the + sign and add an ID attribute.
