Velvet Blues Update URLs
[resolved] Please don't change GUIDs (2 posts)

    I love this plugin--it saves a lot of hassle, wading through the database, and manually changing database fields in a way that may or may not cause more trouble than they solve.

    However, it looks like it changes all the GUIDs in the posts table. The WordPress Codex warns against this: "It is critical that you do not change the contents of this field." http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL#Important_GUID_Note

    Can this plugin be updated so it continues to edit the other sections of the database, but not the GUID column?

    Thanks! In the upcoming version, there will be choices so users can select which GUID's to update. This will make sure that all GUID's to posts, pages, and post_types remain the same and don't interfere with the unique GUID that feed readers and aggregators use. However, to display images and other attachments, some GUID's will need to be updated, but it will still be a choice.
