Basically the title. I'm a wp newbee, and have been tearing my hair out trying to find a solution to this.. but to no avail. I'm hoping someone here can maybe point me in the right direction..!
My site here: http://newquaybaitsupplies.co.uk/
I've ftp'd the site to the server fine. I've exported my database fine, and imported it back into the new php admin fine. This gets the site up and running as it should (as in all text, prices, and plugins animating as they should be).
But I lack images. If I go into a post and look at the image path, it is set to my old image path:
Wrong.. doesn't work. It only changes the lightbox images, and no the cover (so basically clicking on blank to reveal.
I've made an example here (click on a blan image box):
I've tried replacing all with search-and-replace.2.6.1, but this only completely erases the image path file (so the site is then left with text everywhere as the image holders are null.
I've tried Settings>>Media and replacing the path file there, but no joy again. This is like 3 days now, I'm not getting any closer to a solution, and am loosing a shed of hair.
I also deleted the database, unzipped a new one and manually "find & replace" each http://nick2:8888/ with nhttp://newquaybaitsupplies.co.uk/ Imported again, but this left the site with no image holders again (so uploaded original database).
All readable and videos tutorials I've followed to a T. They fire up (images etc) straight away.. but I must be missing some vital here??
I forgot to mention, the slugs are also missing (but are viewable via Dashboard>>Categories). Does anyone know why they aren't appearing in the address bar as they should? This makes me think I haven't exported the database correctly or something..?
I feel I've exhausted every possible angle..
Any help or tips are very appreciated!
Thanks and regards
