Support » Fixing WordPress » Mass code update, necessary?

  • Hello everyone,

    If my images are currently referenced as such…

    <p><img border="1" src="/images/journal/hizamakura/hizamakura.jpg" /></p>

    And I move my entire WordPress installation into a subdirectory of where it is now… Will the images on my site break?

    I believe that since I have started referencing them with the directory level.. / … That it’s what is called “absolute” referencing and things won’t break even if I move the WP installation.

    Want to verify though!

    Thanks for any help.

  • If you’re just moving the blog, but not that images directory, you’ll be fine.

    If the images are moving as well, then those absolute referenced ones will indeed be broken.

    Thanks for the encouragement guys! And info. I’ll plan to do this sometime this week!
