Hi,

In my Wordpress blog I have a picture in all my posts. I want to change it's current height from 500 to 400 so I want to replace in my MySQL database the text (height="500" with height="400")

WP Posts table in MySQL is : wp_posts
MySQL field where the text I want to replace is : post_content

Please let me know how I can do that.


Thanks for your help.

This will do:

update wp_posts set post_content = replace(post_content,'height="500"','height="400"');
