    I'm wrapping up my transition from vBulletin 3.7 to XF 1.2. On my vBulletin board, I had a BB Code for embedding YouTube Links, using VB's BB Code Manager.

    After the import, these links no longer work, but my users still visit these threads. Any idea how to update these links?

    How does the code appear in the posts?

    If it is simply the YT tags with the video ID then you can do a simple replacement by running a query:
    UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'current_content','new_content');
    So for simple YT tags the queries would be:
    UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'[YT]','[media=youtube]');
    UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'[/YT]','[/media]');
    Take a backup of the database first.
    ibrian and ARSamo like this.

    Looks like that will work. I'll run the replacement query after the backup.

    Thanks for all the help.
