Support » Fixing WordPress » Import From .Com Caused Photos To Be Hotlinked

  • Resolved nrepair


    I imported my blog and images from a .com blog last week. If I edit a post and view the attached images in the gallery, copies of each image have been imported into my .org installation. My blog knows the uploaded images are attached to a particular post, but the images in the post are still pointing to my .com blog.

    Isn’t this a form of hotlinking? What can I do about it other than manually editing every single post?

    few thinks to check

    * in your database make sure that “siteurl” and “homepage” has your new url
    * check your template, make sure that your images are within the loop, that you are using one the “attachment” functions and they are not using “guid”

    if you are still having problems the easiest way to modify every url is to go to your database, export a txt file do a find a replace and import back the file into you database

    hope this helps



    Thanks, Hax! I exported a sql file and did a find/replace. It worked well.
