Automatic Facebook Posts Posting Old URL (5 posts)

    I have Jetpack set up to share any new post I put up on my Facebook page. It's worked pretty much fine all along. Then, last month, I moved the blog to a new domain name and changed every reference I could find. Everywhere I look I see nothing but the new domain name EXCEPT when I create a new post and it shows up on Facebook. It insists on showing the original domain name. I redirect it so the link still works but I'd like to find this reference and kill it. The settings for Sharing I turned off and re-established (just in case). No difference.

    Where is that domain name still being held and how can I change it?

    I'm sure there's still an entry somewhere that has the old site name. Try using this script: http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/ to run a find a replace.

    Be very careful, this thing is powerful and doesn't have an undo button. Make a backup first and delete the thing when you're done!

    Nope. Ran it (thanks) and it found 9 instances. It changed them all so I put up another quick post and the old URL is still there. Either Jetpack is storing this info somewhere else or Facebook is.

    Did you register an app with facebook? Perhaps the old url is there.

    Not that I'm aware of. I certainly haven't created any apps. Very frustrating.
