    I imported data from ip.board 3.1.14 but now there are problems with similes, html links and quotes.

    You can see them on my board here and in the samples below. I'm looking for a programmer who can write some custom code to fix these problems with my data.

    here are how I'd like them fixed:

    Code:
    text in post:
    
    <!--QuoteBegin-jeffcadieux+--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (jeffcadieux)</div><div class='quotemain'><!--QuoteEBegin-->I'd love some advice on an electronic dictionary.  Do you know of any that let you look-up an unknown kanji, preferably with the SKIP system?
    
    Thanks again!

    I've moved this from 3rd party services as that is for services which you are offering to others.
    This forum still isn't ideal for it, but there isn't one which deals with requests such as this.

    You can solve that with a query to find and replace text in the post table at the db. First of all make a backup of your post table an then run this query:

    Code:
    UPDATE xf_post
    
    SET message = replace(message, 'texttobereplaced', 'replacementtext');
    And then enter the wordings accordingly and if you are using a custom prefix for your db tables then replace xf_ with that prefix.

    problem is filenames and dates in quotes are unique. but that technique may word for similes.
