Support » Fixing WordPress » image links not working – changed domain

  • Resolved doodlefish


    I’ve moved an old site to new hosting and changed the domain from (old site) to .com (new site). The site is working, I’ve installed from a backup file and bought in the new database via phpmyadmin.

    The problem is that all the images on the site have absolute link references and reference the old domain ( The images have all transferred across correctly and are in the wp-content/uploads/2012/04 etc structure on the new hosting.

    Can anyone suggest how to resolve this problem. I’ve tried changing the link reference but it still won’t show the image. Not sure what else to try.

    Thanks Esmi – that looks great. I reuploaded the images folder and it looks like they have all come back so must have been an issue with teh FTP file upload.

    I wish I had that link before I started guessing my way through the wp move 🙂
