If you have Joomla articles mixed in a category where they don't belong along with articles that do belong, batch moving them to the proper location can be a slow, tedious task using the core Joomla method. Join us as we look at how to streamline using DB Replacer from Regular Labs.



  • The title of the livestream is "Moving Joomla Articles Using DB Replacer from Regular Labs - 👀 Watch Me Work Live Stream 022 - YouTube."
    - The speaker introduces themselves as Tim Davis and mentions that it's the 22nd episode of the "Watch Me Work" livestream.
    - The livestream discusses how to batch move Joomla articles from one category to another using DB Replacer from Regular Labs.
    - The speaker is working on a client's website, Faith Community Church CA, which has articles in the wrong category (resources instead of sermons).
    - The challenge is to find and move articles from the "resources" category to the "sermons" category without affecting other articles.
    - The livestream explains the use of DB Replacer, a powerful Joomla extension that can make direct changes to the database.
    - The speaker emphasizes the importance of backing up the website before using DB Replacer due to its potential to cause issues.
