Shortlinks Broken (4 posts)

    We recently switched hosting to media temple and changed the wordpress directory from the media temple preview site to the actual domain. Now for some reason all the shortlinks I used when building the site still point to the preview site. Is there a way to reset the shortlinks?

    The website is overheaddoorhouston.com

    Ok I took it up with Jetpack and they told me to come back here lol. I fixed the problem, but it was annoying. All you have to do is turn jetpack off and then turn it back on. Then you have to go back through your site and change every shortlink you used to the new one.

    The lesson to be learned here is to NOT USE SHORTLINKS WHEN BUILDING A SITE ON A MEDIA TEMPLE PREVIEW SITE
