I'm looking to do a search & replace on one of my sites so I can implement some kind of glossary system.
Here's the basic code I've got so far for a quick test page...
But, there's a problem with this.
Line 1 works perfectly. It replaces "test" with "sample", and all is well with the world.
The problem is with Line 2. If the text is inside a link, either as the actual URL or as part of the anchor text, I want it to completely skip over it and not replace it. Line 2 should remain untouched.
Anybody got any ideas on how to do this one?
Btw, the query has changed slightly...
document.body.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML.replace(/\b(test)\b/g, 'sample');
So, now something like "testicles" (sorry, couldn't think of another word), doesn't get turned into sampleicles, however because of the .'s in
http://www.test.com, that still gets changed to
