Talk:Search and replace tool

Jump to: navigation, search

In recent versions of Moodle this Search and Replace tool has an additional checkbox called "Shorten result if necessary", so this screenshot is out of date.

What is this "Shorten result if necessary" checkbox? What does "Shorten result if necessary" mean?

And what are "the risks of this operation"? Those risks should be listed here. Not everybody is able to read PHP code to try and work out the risks themselves. --Luis de Vasconcelos (talk) 13:01, 16 September 2014 (WST)

Thanks Luis, I have removed the out-of-date screenshot. --Helen Foster (talk) 16:14, 25 August 2015 (AWST)
What does "Shorten result if necessary" do? Can somebody add an explanation to this topic? --Luis de Vasconcelos (talk) 11:50, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
Luis, sorry I don't know the answers to your questions. Please could you ask in a forum on moodle.org where a lot more people will see your questions and be able to respond. --Helen Foster (talk) 20:05, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
