Images Not Appearing Post Move (3 posts)

    So I just moved my WordPress installation. It was http://www.buxmonttorch.com/wordpress and I've now moved it to http://www.buxmonttorch.com.

    I changed the settings under General to reflect the change. Everything works but the images. I went through and edited any absolute references to images, and now they show up fine. But it's the images I uploaded through WordPress' Media Library that aren't working.

    If you click through the site, you'll see broken pics. No host switch. All I did was move the contents from the /wordpress directory to the root. Shouldn't everything have been relative and come along?

    Did you follow the instructions in Moving_WordPress or Allowing WordPress to take over the root domain?

    I thought so. I've done it half a dozen times before on other sites with no issue.

    But on every other wordpress site I have, the image properties are always something like: http://www.mysite.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/image.jpg

    but on this site, all the image properties show: http://www.mysite.com/images/image.jpg

    Any ideas why?
