There are comments / links in older posts from BrewAdvice that link to the wrong ID on the current site. Is there a way to update these programmatically, or do we have to go in and fix them ourselves?

Example: Immersion chiller or counter-flow chiller?


Below are a list of posts / comments that have a link to BrewAdvice.com - there's no great way of automatically linking these so the effort will be manual

  • I'm going to start doing these and crossing them off the list. Any other admins, please lend a hand. – hookedonwinter Apr 20 '11 at 23:29
  • @PJ would it be helpful for those of us without edit access to help out too? Is it easier for you to approve an edit than actually editing? – Mark McDonald Jun 5 '11 at 7:19
  • @PJ All posts up through ID 1300 (not comments) are done (currently as suggested-edits). Can you wikify this? I don't have the option to edit it. – yhw42 Jun 11 '11 at 14:53

I'm a moderator at tex.stackexchange.com and we always do that by hand. I'm not aware of any scripting or other solution which would avoid that and don't think there is any.
