Domain name change questions (3 posts)

    I have 3 domain names currently, with two seperate WP installs.

    swantron.com, bouncerblog.com, and 26outs.com.

    bouncerblog was an old blog, that I have re-tooled as swantron.com, and 26outs.com is a new blog that I have (seperate WP install) as an add-on slot to my primary domain at siteground. So essentially, I have 26outs as a subdirectory in my primary DB for the other two.

    I'm looking to make a complete jump to swantron, so that my posts are indexed as swantron.com/### instead of bouncerblog.com/###. I assumed that physically changing the guid from phpmyadmin would act to rename the posts, but this appears to not be the case. I have been looking around, and can't seem to see why this wouldn't be the case. Obviously, I should do a search/replace on all instances of bouncerblog, changing them to swantron, but in testing it on one post, I see that it is still coming up as bouncerblog.

    Any ideas of what I am missing? Thanks for the help ahead of time.

    wow...I totally missed the admin/settings/general option. Couldn't see the forrest for the trees.

    One more quick question...is there any sort of slick one-liner to change the permalinks to get the picture links up and rolling?
