Title: Global Seach & Replace
Post by: SMiFFER on February 17, 2018, 02:53:36 PM
Move this where you deem fit

Is there a way I can run a search on my whole forum and replace?

Say 4 example there are numerous locations where
"polittical correctness" needs to be fixed.

How can I get that done?

The closest thing I could think of would be to use the built in word censor feature.

Go to admin>Posts and Topics> Censored Words. Then click on the "click here to add another word"

Then just type in the word you want censored to whatever word you want and that new word word you chose would appear

this would never be a feature... and I can't see it being a mod either.

I'd argue that globally changing previously made posts by other people is unethical.
