    A simple SQL query will do that.

    Code:
    UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'current_content','new_content');
    
    So in your case:
    Code:
    UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'http://www.domain.com/content/','http://www.domain.com/threads/');
    
    Take a backup first, just in case.

    Thanks, I was over thinking it, forgot I could do it this way.

    BTW shouldn't the replace be http://www.domain.com/ otherwise it'd end up being http://www.domain.com/thread/thread/?
