Just a quick note of appreciation. I'm using your software for a student I teach who has many learning difficulties, but he is thrilled (and motivated) to be working with your software. Please continue the excellent work, and best of luck going forward.
Ed, Canada.

We are a homeschool family and we have been using your site for nearly 10 months now...we think you're great!

Keep up the fantastic work you do!
Warmest Regards
Sarah, New Zealand

I have been using your programs for years now and am really glad for a chance to say how FAB they are. They are better than any other I've found for educational purposes and a fraction of the price. All the kids who have used them at my school LOVE them and I think you are a very very clever man!!

Block Text Replacer
Colours and size of screenshot reduced to fit page

Recommended Minimum System: Pentium PC, Windows 95 or better e.g. XP, Vista, Windows 7, (Mac users click here), 32MB Ram.

A very simple program to replace blocks of text in html or text documents. I have tested this up to 1,975 characters of text to replace which is quite a sizeable chunk but I'm not sure what the maximum could be. Once files have been altered a list is saved in the files' folder, called Upload.txt. This list can then be used by the program's FTP upload facility to add the files to your webspace.

Program includes an uninstall facility. Compressed file size - 794 KB.

Text Replacer Screen

The following steps will help you to find and replace blocks of text in your documents. It will only replace one instance in each file and then move onto the next. Please be sure to make a backup copy of any directory you wish to work on, as any find and replace action in whatever program can produce unexpected results:

1. Choose the file type (html, txt etc.,) you want to work on from the drop down box

2. Click on Choose New Directory button to locate the directory that contains the files you want to work on

3. If successful a list of files should appear in the top blue box

4. The contents of the first file should appear in the main yellow box. Parts of the text can be copied by right mouse clicking and choosing Copy

5. Type or right click and paste the text you want to find into the left green box

6. Type or paste the text you want to replace the found text with into the right red box

7. To do each file step by step click the Manual Replace button

8. To go through the whole list of files automatically click the Auto Replace button. Click the Stop Auto Replace button to stop the process

9. A list of any files that have been altered will be saved automatically

10. To Upload any saved files choose Upload Files in the top menu under Options

After each find and replace action the relevant file is automatically saved. For html files you can use the Check File In Browser button to see the result.

Upload Files (FTP) Screen

The following steps will help you to upload only the files that you altered in the replace text screen:

1. If you have anything to upload for the Local Directory, the files will be listed in the blue box

2. Click on Change Local Directory button to locate any other saved lists

3. Choose an FTP account for the webspace you are uploading to from the drop down green box

4. Click on Add FTP Account if you need to add one

5. Click on Connect to make a connection to your webspace files

6. If successful the files currently on your webspace will be listed in the top yellow box

7. Any Directories in the yellow list will be shown in square brackets with a # symbol in front

8. To change to another directory double click on the entry in the yellow box

9. Depending on the speed of your connection, the listing of the files may take a few moments

10. Once the Status white text reads Listing Complete then you can upload your files

11. Click on the Upload All Files Below One By One button and each one will be transferred

12. Once all the files have been uploaded, then the connection will be closed

13. You can Disconnect at any time by clicking the Disconnect button

Add FTP Account Screen

The following steps will help you to add an FTP account so that you can upload your saved files:

1. The drop down green list is the accounts you have saved previously in the program

2. The name in the green box is just a memorable name you associate with the account

3. To add a new account type a name for it in the name box e.g. "homepage" or "my webspace"

4. Then type the server or host address of your webspace e.g.

5. Then add the user name and password for that account into the appropriate boxes

6. Finally click the Add Account button

7. You CANNOT edit an existing account listing by altering the yellow box entries

8. To alter an account listing, add a new one under a slightly different name

9. Delete any account by choosing it from the drop down green box

Thanks for the TERRIFIC software at a great price!
Suzanne, USA

I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them, and I've come back to your site to find 1) I owe you, and 2) you have more great stuff. I'm happy to pay up because I know the quality of your programs.
Mary Beth, Indiana, USA
