How I have manually batch change history URLs?



  • Hi all

    I have a lot of HTTP links in my history and bookmark which I like to change to corresponding HTTPS ones. I don't want to do this one by one and I want to do it in a batch operation. is there anyway to do so? for example manually change history or bookmark files?



  • Bookmarks are easy as it's a json file
    "%localappdata%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Bookmarks"
    Just use a text editor and search&replace http: with https:
    History is not easily done. You'll have to use a sqlite3 editor like
    https://sqlitebrowser.org/dl/
    on the file
    "%localappdata%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\History"
    make a copy (maybe a couple for good measure) named history.db3, edit it manually or apply this SQL command

    update urls set url=(replace(url,'http:','https:')) where url like 'http:%'
    

    then rename it back without extension.
