    I just moved a wordpress site to a new domain, new url.

    So images, links background and header are all broke. I read the forum about moving but was a little afraid to get in and mess with the files at this point. I know code but have had problems with this for 3 days.

    the url is: www. johnjdycus.com

    Is there an easy way to update everything?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Install this plugin

    and change the URL, it should work.

    It says to do this before moving the site. Is it ok in your experience to do it after the site is up?

    It should work, because you've already moved the site. If there is no problem to copy it from the original site again, you can also use this plugin to move it:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/duplicator/

    it will create a zip file and let you download install.php file, so you can copy to your destination host, install it from there by accessing

    http://newhost.com/install.php
