Support » Fixing WordPress » Changing URL .. any plugins? Best practice?

  • Hi Guys,

    I have a client who have an old HTML website at a hosting space. We are developing a wordpress build at a new hosting space.

    The old site is at – the new WP build is at a temp URL eg

    The new temporary space will have as its domain name when complete. The old host space will be decommisioned/dumped.

    So the WP build will remain in place but its absolute URL will currently be while building. All post images etc will have this URL.

    When it comes to time to dump the old site and “transfer” / link the old URL – – to the new space this will work only so far. All the images and other things relying on the absolute link will remain pointing to

    Has anyone done this? Any advice on plugins to quickly fix this? Whats best practice?

    The new site WILL have alot of images as it will be a catalog based site. Manually changing each one after this URL “move” would be a nightmare.

    Cheers & thanks
