Patrick, pardon me reposting this, I just wanted to see the image...

Decided to shoot for a full house on Smellboy after I pulled a red patch in packs.
At this point, 5 border colors, autograph, 3 border color patches, sepia and 3 backs - black lud, red lud and blank.

no problem. I went back to my earlier post and manually changed it to 'cc' to make it visible.

do you have something that automatically updates the address, or did you alter it manually as well?

Manually. Itís a shame thereís no way to automatically update all the existing links. On top of the photobucket disaster all the cool old threads nearly everywhere are unreadable now.

I know.  So much we had as history and reference is just gone.

I am far from a "forum SME", but I would think that an administrator would have the ability to do some kind of global change on the text/html in a thread...or maybe even forum wide.

I had that thought as well, and will ask Brad.

It's a little confusing, because if you look, for example, at the WP Unopened Pack Reference thread, most of the images still show. The links back then refer to the domain postimage.org. Ultimately, it was changed to postimg.org, and that is the domain that no longer works. So I believe replacing postimg.org with postimg.cc would be effective.

Unfortunately, it seems there is no way to do a global search and replace.  :sad:

If people see their posts are missing important pics, they can manually edit them.

Wow, I've always thought this forum software was pretty good, but I guess it's missing some basic tools...at least, IMO.

I've never seen the underlying software.  I pretty much just move misplaced threads and watch out for spammers (which have been non-existent since the new user sign in stopped working correctly).

However, I can edit posts, so if no one objects, if I find myself up all night, unable to sleep, I could start editing some of the more "important" threads.  Any post I change will show that I edited it, with a date.

If anyone objects, LMK and I won't touch your posts.  If anyone would like me to attempt this for their posts, LMK.  Of course, if you're willing to change your own, that would be fantastic.  I'd also appreciate suggestions on which thread(s) to start with - I'm thinking the one with the Wacky and the original packaging, and maybe the "This Week in Your Collection."

We'll see how much I can manage without my fingers falling off   :P

In case anyone is interested, this was my submission for the NinjaGo, for the Movie set.

I was always worried that the joke got a bit lost in translation, as the final drawing didn't
show any fruit being chopped by the karate chop kick...you get the idea.

Now back to the program....

By using phpMyAdmin you can do a global search and replace. You open the smf database, choose the smf_messages table, click on the search tab and pick search and replace on the body column. It will then give you a preview of all of the changes that will be made so you  can verify before you click replace. Just make sure to backup the database first.

What tool did you use for find and replace?

I used phpMyAdmin. It is usually an option in your hosting control panel for SQL databases.

Maybe you have an earlier version than what I have. I have 4.7.7. Click on the house icon under phpMyAdmin on the left column and it will show your version on left.

I guess that is a feature that was added in newer versions. I know a search and replace can be done with SQL but I don't know enough about it to help.
