Dear friends,

I want to doing mass replace in order to change smiley code in all posts, example:

(the text is in post table > text row)
you're very funny :smiley1:

How to replace all :smiley1: to :funny: in entire post?

Thanks before :)

From the MySQL manual -- string functions:


Returns the string str with all occurrences of the string from_str
replaced by the string to_str. REPLACE() performs a case-sensitive
match when searching for from_str. 

mysql> SELECT REPLACE('www.mysql.com', 'w', 'Ww');
        -> 'WwWwWw.mysql.com'

This function is multi-byte safe.

Twice a day my clock works PERFECTLY!  I can't figure out what's wrong with it.
