    I’m not sure how to tell what WordPress version I’m using. I know it’s not the latest as it requests I update to 3.0.1.

    My question:

    Is there a way to do a find and replace in existing pages and blog posts? I’m thinking of changing my website address and am not looking forward to updating all of my internal links.

    I don’t think you can do that from within wordpress. What you can do is change the data directly into the database. Back up first! What I suggest is downloading a copy of you database, or maybe just the tables you want, and then do a search and replace on it with any text editor. Or you could use a SQL query, whatever you feel most comfortable with. Back up! and maybe try it first on a test server.

    Also, in the future, maybe using relative links can save you a lot of trouble? 🙂
