Updating multiple hyperlinks

my webmaster just informed me that he had changed several urls that I had been using throughout many of my nurture campaigns. Other than going through and editing each one individually, does anyone know if MKTO has a feature to mass-update hyperlinks that are being used in multiple emails? I didn't find anything myself, but just checking to see if someone knew a secret. Would be a great feature to have if we don't already!

The secret is to use tokens for your URLs. Too late now of course.

If the URLs were for Marketo-hosted LPs, you could use Redirect Rules. But from your phrasing they're not under Marketo's control. So holler at your webmaster to create rewrite rules -- any webserver supports them.

Thanks! Yes, much too late in this case. He did use many redirect rules, but in some cases he completely eliminated the pages.

Well, if the pages are gone then search/replace wouldn't really work anyway! If you blanked out the URL only then you'd be left with a dead link. Though if all your links were Velocity-powered you could remove the <a> entirely.
