    After converting from SMF, I've discovered that every single quotation mark (double quote) on my Xenforo forums has been replaced with "

    Is there a simple database query I could run that would replace every instance of " with quotation marks?

    Use Kier's resource to replace post content. If it requires RegEx:

    Replace it with " and you should be good.

    If it's a simple replacement for identical content, you could just use a query.

    UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'current_content','new_content');
    Take a backup before doing so though.
    imno007 and Jeremy like this.

    Thanks, Brogan, will give it a try soon and see how it goes.
