[resolved] merged posts lost all their feature images... (3 posts)

    Hi,

    So I had to merge some posts from an existing site, into a new test site. Funny thing is, the posts came over fine, but the feature images didn't. The uploads folder is up-to-date and they exist there.

    I'm wondering why this happened. And how to fix it. Any ideas?

    Edit: I'm guessing it has something to do with a URL in an image field maybe? Looking for a DB query to run.

    Thanks

    So it seems like wordpress just went ahead and lost all the image attachments to posts. I've been doing some URL replacements, but to no avail. Any suggestions on where to look for this?

    Or else its going through 200+ posts and _re-attaching thumbnails_ which does not sound very appealing, and being that I have no attention for admin detail I will likely attach the wrong thing to the wrong place somewhere and someone will have a bird-dog.

    Suggestions?

    Just went in and updated all posts by hand. Maybe there will be a plugin in the future or something.
