Find-and-replace post text sitewide


Active member
A forum member just changed their user name and we need to swap out the text in all posts forum wide that contain "old name" and then change it to "new name". (We've already made the membername, update cache changes.)

Is there an easy way to accomplish this, I'm assuming with PHPAdmin? If so, could someone provide step-by-step instructions how to do this? His name is very uncommon so it wouldn't be used anytime else on the forum, except for the content of forum posts.
It looks like XenForo's censorship options will automatically take care of this issue on past and future posts. Simply great software!

We're all believing that better days are ahead. :)
