A few years ago, I started using PhotoPress on a blog that now has thousands of photos embedded in posts using the plugin (http://www.raincityguide.com).
Last night I upgraded to the latest version of WordPress (2.5.1) and the permalinks associated with all the photo pages broke. 🙁
I did the usual things:
(1) installed the latest version of the plugin (1.1)
(2) “updated” the permalink structure from the admin panel of WordPress
but the photo pages still break. (As this post shows, the photos still show up, but the link to the photo details breaks: http://www.raincityguide.com/2008/04/21/spring-projects-sprucing-up-that-old-cracked-walkway-or-patio/)
In an ideal world, I’d LOVE to simply batch all the photos from the PhotoPress database into the current WordPress Uploader, and be done with PhotoPress forever, but PhotoPress has a unique way of encoding photos in a post, and I haven’t seen anything suggesting there is a clean way to do this.
Despite many searches on the WordPress.org forums, there appears to be no support for those of us using PhotoPress. I see thread after thread with questions, but no answers, including mine from yesterday (as well as my question on the developer’s blog post.)
Here are my two questions:
1) Is there a fix for the permalink issue that will at least salvage the situation so that thousands of photos no longer break on my site?
2) Does anyone have experience migrating from PhotoPress to the WordPress Uploader that they’d be willing to share?
Any and all help would obviously be appreciated!
