Relative Image URLs

Description

When inserting an image into a post, WordPress uses absolute URLs to the files. This plugin overrides that functionality and forces it to use relative URLs.

For example:

WordPress Default:
http://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/example.jpg

Plugin Override:
/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/example.jpg

This is particularly useful if you plan on switching domains ever as well as reducing HTTP requests.

Screenshots

  • Shows the difference between absolute and relative image URLs in the WordPress post editor.

Installation

  1. Upload the ‘No Image Link’ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

FAQ

Do I have to set any options?

Nope. It’s ready to go right out of the box.

Why would I want relative image URLs?

A few reasons:

  • Makes it easier to move your site if you ever want to switch domains.
  • If you have an install as a development/testing version of your site that you migrate frequently.
  • Reduces HTTP requests, which will speed up page load time.
