Removed a plugin from WordPress, want to remove calls to it from BB pages

Hi, I deleted a plugin that I was using and there are calls to its widget on many BB pages. Is there a way to bulk remove or replace that widget on the BB pages with another widget or a shortcode, or do I need to delete/replace from each page individually? Thanks.

Hey Lori,

The only way I could think of is to do a serialized search and replace on your DB searching for the old shortcode and replacing it with the new one. You can use the plugin Better Search Replace plugin for this. I’m not really sure if that’ll do but you could give it a shot. Just take note though, always take a backup of your DB before doing so as there is a chance it will break the layout. If this doesn’t work, you’re gonna have to do it manually I’m afraid.
