Hi all,

we've been using DokuWiki for documenting our 3D engine at www.cafu.de/wiki for years, and we're very happy with it! :-)

Now we'd like to globally "Search and Replace" some URLs and names in all wiki 
Can we do this by directly editing the contents of the data/pages/*.txt files?

Page locking is not a concern, and having changelog entries for these changes is not required as well. However, are we safe from inadvertently creating any inconsistencies regarding the DokuWiki internals when directly editing the data/pages/*.txt files?
Anything to be aware of?

Thank you very much,
and best regards,
