Image links broken after domain change (3 posts)

    I moved my site onto it's permanent domain name earlier this week (same server) and now my image links are broken. I'd hate to have to reattach all of the images on all posts....

    I followed these instructions (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-see-images-after-domain-name-change?replies=3) but it did not fix the problem so I restored my database from a backup.

    I think the following caused the problem but I don't know how to fix it:

    The original installation was on guidesunvalley.com and the WordPress URL was guidesunvalley.com/blog while the site address was guidesunvalley.com

    When Go Daddy support helped me reassign the domain, he insisted that I install it as sturtos.com, sturtos.com so there wasn't a redirect.

    Can I just change the WordPress URL to sturtos.com/blog (where the wordpress files live) or will that cause additional problems?

    Thanks!

    PS - I was looking at the database tables this morning and noticed that the DB-site table has blog.sturtos.com as the domain - that's what it was before guidesunvalley.com and subsequently sturtos.com. When I moved the site to guidesunvalley.com I did a search and replace from blog.sturtos.com so I'm not sure how that reference is still there.

    Should I change it? Should it be sturtos.com or sturtos.com/blog (where the WP files live)?

    You can. Install WP at sturtos.com/blog, import your database and contents into it, and change all the URLs to sturtos.com/blog/ instead of guidesunvalley.com/blog/

    I hope you know how to do it.

    Krishna - thanks. I already have my WP install on sturtos.com/blog so I think the problem is that the Go Daddy support had me change my WordPress URL from guidesunvalley.com/blog to sturtos.com/blog.

    I've backed everything up so I think I'm going to go ahead and change it back and cross my fingers....
