'Find and Replace' Tool Has Limits

This feature of the Site Admin console has limits in what it can see, and thus replace.

Revised May 24, 2017

This is resolved

This tool now searches in directory entry components.

The Issue

'Find and Replace' is a feature on the Websites admin console which allows authors to locate and modify specific words or phrases throughout their websites.

The tool indexes primary areas like titles, headers and content fields of text components, but may have troubles seeing words in more buried fields, such as teaser descriptions and titles in shared content, Page Properties, or links in lists.

Workaround

This is normal behavior so there is no workaround.
