Does anyone know of any clients/scripts/anything that can do a search/replace on an entire journal? I've got a bunch of images linked over the past few years on my LJ, and now need to change the hosting for them, and it'd be handy if there was something I could use to just crunch through all the entries and update the URLs.

If you know how to program, all of the journal-hiding programs do 95% of what you want.

Try ljarchive, which downloads and archives your entire journal. Once it has been downloaded there's an excellent search function that can easily handle a URLs or whatever you throw at it. The replace, however, would be up to you to do by hand... but at least you'd know WHAT entries you need to go edit.

I've only heard of one. There've been a bunch of clients/scripts to mass-edit post security, or download a journal and edit the offline copy though. It was posted about to the lj_nifty community here. Not sure if its links are still valid (if not Wayback Machine?).

Just in the interests of caution: Some past (security) mass-edit tools have had a data-loss bug (details), also warned about here.

I haven't used the above tool myself. So I can't say whether it'll work, or delete/mung entries due to bugs, shoot your dog etc., etc! :o)
