Migration Frustration!! (1 post)

    Hi Folks

    Over a year ago my client moved from http://mollyandtheprincess.wordpress.com to http://mollyandtheprincess.com

    The hosting company offered to do the migration and all seemed fine. A year down the line I am hunting around log files looking for reasons why the site keeps giving 500 errors and I spot errors pointing to images at http://mollyandtheprincess.wordpress.com

    On closer inspection it seems that when the hosts migrated the site they left the post images on the old .com server and all the pre migration image paths all point back to it. Every post since the migration has been fine.

    This shows one of the migrated posts and by mousing over the images you can see they are still on the .com server!

    So my question is, how do I bulk download all the photos from 86 posts on http://mollyandtheprincess.wordpress.com and then upload them to http://mollyandtheprincess.com and change the paths to the images. Is there a quick way!

    Of course the hosting company that offered to migrate the site over to their servers are denying all knowledge of this "error".

    Thanks in advance

    Stuart
