[resolved] Broken Template Images After Changing URL (3 posts)

    Hello, I just recently switched from blogger to WordPress (but had a .com) and successfully imported all my posts, comments and images. Once I changed the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) in Settings, then General, all of the post images are appearing, but the template images (like the logo) have all disappeared. I installed the SEO Blogger to WordPress 301 Redirection Plugin so I'm not sure if that's not working properly or if its in WordPress. The weirdest thing is that all my wordpress images in my dashboard (like the Save button) are broken too!

    Change the urls back. See Changing_The_Site_URL.

    Thank you thank you! None of those options worked until I tried this option - then it worked! Back online! (happy dance!)

    Changing the .htaccess file
    After changing the information in your Administration > Settings > General panel, you will need to update your .htaccess file if you are using Permalinks or any rewrites or redirects.

    Make a backup copy of your .htaccess file. This is not a recommendation but a requirement.
    Open the .htaccess file in a text editor.
    Review its contents, looking for any custom rewrites or redirects you entered. Copy these to another text file for safe keeping.
    Close the file.
    Follow the instructions on the Permalinks SubPanel for updating your Permalinks to the .htaccess file.
    Open the new .htaccess file and check to see if your custom rewrites and redirects are still there. If not, copy them from the saved file and paste them into the new .htaccess file.
    Make any changes necessary in those custom rewrites and redirects to reflect the new site address.
    Save the file.
    Test those redirects to ensure they are working.
    If you make a mistake, you can Restoring Your Database From Backup from your backup and try this again. So make sure it is right the first time.
