    Hi, I have just had my site moved over from one server to another server and I have problems with the site. I unfortuantely lost my images, but, also, the tool bar on the pages that change fonts, sizes, the kitchen sink part, although the buttons work, they don't have any names on the buttons. I have included a snippet to show.....


    I am using Platform theme, have updated wp, deactivated and reactivated tinymce, etc, I don't know what to do, if it's a plugin problem or what. Can anyone help please? Many thanks,

    There are URLs and paths stored in the database in 'serialized' form. You must use special tools to search and replace the old values with the new ones. If this is not done properly, many different problems can result.

    If the old site is still available, you can use the steps shown in this article to copy the site: http://wordpress.mcdspot.com/2012/08/22/migrating-a-wordpress-site-step-by-step/

    If the old site is not available, and you still have a copy of the database from that site, you should be able to use this tool to make the changes: http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/
