Support » Plugin: Ultimate Responsive Image Slider Plugin » Image Links Broken After Domain Name Change

  • Whenever I move a site from its development platform (a sub-domain) the UR Sliders are all broken links. If I view source, the link addresses are pointing to the old URL. This has now happened on 3 sites. I have then to go in manually & update the image links. A simple Search & Replace doesn’t work either. I’ve been using WP Clone to move from the development folder to the live folder.

    Here is one example: http://www.hhroofing.co.za/domestic-photovoltaic/

  • https://wordpress.org/support/topic/links-broken-after-domain-name-change/ … you can trigger the url change by hand. You can find the button on the “Help and Support” site. By the way, I don’t like this too.

    Thanks – I’ve tried clicking on the button but it doesn’t work.
    Feeling a bit frustrated, it’s a great plugin… but this should be a standard working feature.

    Hello seebeedesign,

    the url being shown is as below-
    http://hhroofing.co.za/newsite/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/12072009195-300×300.jpg

    In this the folder newsite is there. So you just have to move your images in ‘newsite folder’….and the issue will be resolved.
    Thanks

    @weblizar_support , where can I find the saved image path? I think triggering the “change path function” by hand is not that nice… I’m happy about every hint. Thank you!

    Best Regards
    Martin

    Dear @weblizar_support

    I’m not going to create another folder and put the images in it – this is not the way a plugin should work. Its messy and makes life hard for my client who will ultimately have to manage & maintain the site.

    I use this plugin often – but I will have to find something more suitable if it can’t migrate the file links from a test domain to a live site without having to create its own folder structure outside of wordpress. Please please look into this issue & try to correct it so the image paths update when one moves / clones the site.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is this still an issue in version 3.0.1, or has it been resolved?

    Hi Guys,

    There is an option available for this into the plugin like when you changing the domain name or change directory of WordPress installation. A Plugin setting will take care of this.

    1. Login to admin dashboard

    2. Go to URIS plugin menu

    3. There is submenu available “Help & Support” into within plugin menu, go to that submenu page

    4. At the bottom of that page a blue button “Change All URL” avaliable

    5. Hit that button this will fix all problem

    Let us know is still is there a problem? We will help you

    Your feedback is appreciated HERE.

    Hope this plugin is working great for you.

    Thanks & Happy Ester to you and all your family. 🙂
