How to modify HTML/Themeforest Themes to work in any path statically using unix/linux's sed command

For themes and custom CMS setups, the typical HTML theme is not ready to go at all but here are some common sed commands (search and replace that will get most of them working without breaking as you'd expect).

The problem is that often the theme directory will be separate from the content and this will break the relative paths that these themes use.

sed -i s/'href="'/'href="\/themes\/yourtheme\/'/g index.html
sed -i s/'src="'/'src="\/themes\/yourtheme\/'/g index.html
sed -i s/"url(.."/"url(\/themes\/yourtheme\/"/g *.css

In the order of the above

replace all instances of href=" with href="/themes/yourtheme/

replace all instances of src=" with src="/themes/yourtheme/

replace all instances of "url(.. with url(/themes/yourtheme/
