If you are trying to use Search and replace WordPress plugin to replace the URL’s of old website with new website. Or you have imported a demo content which couldn’t change the URL’s from old to new ones.
Why URL’s didn’t change with Search and Replace?
Some plugins just like Elementor WordPress Plugin changes the input into some compression mode before they save it to database. That compressed information do not provide information which URL’s are present in that compression. So search and plugins while can work with arrays and objects but wouldn’t work with such compressed data. In that case they wouldn’t able to replace old website url to new website URL.
The only way to do this is decompress the data and then find the URL’s in that data.
