    I have two poorly maintained websites that I recently took over for my new job. I’ve never used wordpress and by no means am I tech savvy compared to most people on this forum. But heres my problem…

    Saratogaministorage.com

    All of a sudden last week my images stopped loading, most importantly my link to our online payment! I don’t have any idea what I’m doing but I really need it fixed ASAP, any suggestions? Its strange because I havnt touched the site in months until this and now all of a sudden it changed.

  • Has anyone been in there messing with settings? Has the site been moved since the problem began?

    The pictures are trying to load from here. Which is a different location (URL)

    If that is the case, and things have been moved, a search and replace should be sufficient to get things linked back up

    Changing the old URL to the New in the database, maybe using a plugin like

    Since the problem occured (roughly a week ago) I updated to the newest version of WP, I was one update behind. I also updated all of my widgets plugins and themes. Up to that point nobody had touched the site for months. Any thoughts?

    I’m trying to figure out why the URL where your site is doesn’t match the URL where your pictures is…

    IF you notice that URL I posted above, it points to saratogastoragerentaldiscounts.com

    If I take that URL, and swap that part with saratogaministorage.com, I can load your pic

    So the whole site was moved, but not properly

    That was very helpful. I have no idea what happened but thank you I kind of know how to fix it now

    Hopefully you can get it sorted out from here!
