    Hello,

    Just got bluehost and installed the new 2.5 version. I successfully transferred my blog from Typepad to WP using the great import tool they have, but not sure if it was that or my theme, but none of the images are showing up except header and html images. Please help!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Your images still have their old Typepad URLs.

    Replace the old base URL path to the images with the new one. You can do this for everything at one time using the Search & Replace plugin (warning, there's no undo so be very sure of what you're doing).

    iridiax, I just imported by typepad posts into wordpress. Oddly, the photos show up on the edit page, but even when I re-save, they don't show up on the blog. They do have the old typepad urls. Like:

    <img class="at-xid-6a00d83451b8b869e20105365adca1970b" style="margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px;" title="IMG_5449" src="http://abroadincostarica.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451b8b869e20105365adca1970b-320pi" alt="IMG_5449" />

    Jeez. I can do the search and replace - I'll do it on the text file and re-upload. But... what is the new url? I can just replace the old url and this will upload the photo to wordpress?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Saratica, see: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/225893

    Typepad apparently does not make it easy to transfer away from them. If your blog with them has been deleted or if they are using hotlink protection or some sort of special image serving (their image names and URLs are unusual), then your typepad images may not display on your new site.
