    I just moved my domain and decided to start a word press blog. Before my domain worked, i set up wp using the temporary domain name from my host.. hostingcompany.come/~my_account. My domain now works but the images in my blog still showed through the hosting company domain. Today they migrated my account to their main server, and the hosting company url doesn't work any more.

    Unfortunately, all the images on my blog now broken.. when i click on them it tries to go to my temp hosting company domain.

    I have updated the site url and the home page. When I edit the media, the url shows my new domain, but the images still don't work.

    Any ideas?

    You could dump your db, do a search/replace on the url, drop the tables and import the corrected sql file. See the db editing part of the following video:


    There may also be a search/replace plugin that may work as well, but either way, you need to backup your db before attempting this.
