    How do I Search Keyword & Auto-Replace with Phrase?

    Example: If our members have posted a thousand comments with the word "website", how would I locate all of the words and have it automatically replace it with the phrase "web site"?

    Example 2: Locate all keywords of IPIU and replace it with International Private Investigators Union.

      How can I limit the search and replace to any of the following:

      1) A specific forum?

      2) A date range?

      3) Or, to selectively approve each search and replace?

        1) Make a new style for that forum (can be a copy of the old style) and just make the replacement variable for that style.

        2) & 3) I don't think that's possible, maybe 2) could be done with some kind of SQL query...
