  • Global search and replace?

    Is there any way to GLOBALLY replace a word or a phrase in all posts & forums?

  • #2
    You want to do a mass replace in the text of all posts/threads?
    Now and forever?

      Only by directly manipulating the database and using MySQL's replace into functionality. I would recommend making a backup first because if something gets messed up there is no way we can help you fix any issues.

        You'd need to do constant replacements then which wouldn't be a good idea, try the replacement systel in the style manager.

          Just note the replacement variables are global.. They will replace URLs, Usernames, Links in HTML, text in the FAQ, anything that matches.

          The best ongoing solution would be a plugin that hooks into the post parsing routine and makes the replacement at that time.
