Relative URL for Img and A Tags


This plugin will remove the root of the domain from links and image sources. This means that it will leave the relative URL on your image and links. This is useful if you are installing your wordpress website on a subfolder which you will move on the main domain.

You can move your site to a different subdomain, subfolder, parent folder, etc., without having to edit image sources and link URLs.

So, would become /wp-content/uploads/2016/05/svggraph-pie-graph.jpg

Note: We haven’t tested the plugin on any page builder yet.


  • removes the the domain name on links for internal links
  • removes domain from on image sources for images located in the server


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Back up database before activating and installing the plugin.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. If you have installed a cache plugin, clear it, then view an old post that contains an image and check if the image or link renders properly.

I tested on local hosted wordpress installations with big amount of pictures. Part of the pictures integrated in slider and woocommerce shop. All is working fine.
