in reply to How to get a placeholder to keep the current column value?

Anyway, my question: can I use placeholders in case I don't want to change the value of a column, without obtaining the old value from the record first?
No. The purpose of placeholders is to prevent injection of sql code (basically save you the trouble of calling quote).

[holli]: yeah, then vroom will personally stab me in the back at night
[holli]: exactly, moritz
[moritz]: with a big table of redirects to support the old links
[LanX]: do it
[holli]: well if you put some cleverness into the migration you can auto convert most of the links as well
