all link as relative path (2 posts)

    as fresh user of WP, i'm surprised to face a new behavior.
    all pictures i added to my WP site (when i was on my testing server) still use the testing server url while i migrate everything on production server.

    are all medias (images, videos) always used in WP with hard path ? WP do not use relative path for media url ?
    everything is always saved as "http://my-testing-server/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/my-image.jpg"...while i would like to have "wp-content/uploads/2012/12/my-image.jpg" at least, or shorter is possible.

    is it possible ?

    I too was surprised by this...

    (and am also a WP newbie)

    I have been researching at have not yet found a simple, straightforward solution.

    There seem to be plugins to help, but they seem to have their own set of issues.

    Really seems primitive.

    From what I can tell, when you do try to setup relative addressing using whatever bandage you choose, you should be sure to do ROOT RELATIVE addressing.
