    The word "threads" is decidedly geeky. I would like to change it universally to "topics." I know how to do this on a one-off basis. How can I change this throughout the forum, however? Thanks.

    Search for phrases containing thread and change those.

    Thanks, but I was really looking for a way not to have to do this to the dozens and dozens of individual phrases.

    Unfortunately there is not an easier way. You have to find and edit individual phrases. A bulk find and replace would be dangerous for a word like "threads".

    Also, this addon is useful if you wish to change that word in the URLs:
