    Hi all.

    I wish a way to go through all my posts and remove all their tags (except for the headers actuelly).

    Is there such a way to do it ?

    (the only way I can think of is going post post, doing cut&paste to note-pad, and fixing the header-tags. But I have 200 posts, PLEASE tell me there is another way :-(

    (for I have uploaded my texts from ms-word, to post2blog - which has a build in clean up for files from word - but it did not clean good enough...)

    Thanks in advance,

    I'd recommend backing up your posts table to a .sql file, which is basically just a text file. Then you can use a text editor that allows you use regular expression search and replace (I'm thinking of Quanta Plus for Linux desktops; I don't know what's out there that's open-source for Windows) to remove those tags.

    Could you direct me as to how to save my sql - download and upload it ?
    (I have installed GamerZ "wp-dbmanager204" plugin, can it help ?)

    I am using a goDady acount.
    As for the program to use for editing the file - I will find one - and write here about it.

    Did I say thanks ?

    I don't know anything about the plugin you mention, but here is a lot of helpful information about how to back up your database (i.e., end up with an sql file).

    Here you can learn how to restore your database.
