  • Domain Name Change

    If I change my domain name is there a way to search every single post and replace instances where users have referenced other posts in theirs.

    So basically I have www.olddomain.com/showthread.php?p= etc

    to

    www.newdomain.com/forum/showthread.php?p=etc

    I am afraid this would require a custom query to run on your database. I wish I knew which one, because I have a few sites with old threads from an old domain.

      I think this would be pretty easy from a SQL query aspect - do you know if the actual posts are stored in a single column in a table .

      Forinstance you could do a FIND REPLACE SQL query against that field pretty easily..if it was only that one field

      I suppose failing this we could use a mod rewrite in the .htaccess file too...

          or if you want to do it really really simply without any SQL changes you could just do a replacement variable
