I am sorry, but I am not sure I understand the question.

If you want to know if it allows to find and replace text in discussion lists items - the answer is yes.

This does work with discussions boards. however, it only finds replaces content from the post replies and not the original post. This was a show stopper for us. Is there a fix for this?

Hi CodeRider,

the reason for that is probably since the tool only look in list items meta data and not list folders meta data.

A topic is actually a folder...

The fix should be very easy and simple, I just need to find the time to do it.

If you are a crafty man with C#, you can get the source code and build it yourself - only where ever there is a loop for SPListItems, add a loop for all folders (recursive) and fix the SPFolder.Item as well.

I'll update if and when i get the time to fix it - please subscribe to this discussion.
