[resolved] Some images reference the localhost (6 posts)

    Hey there,
    Great plugin, which worked well until i realised that some of the images were pointing to the new server, but some were still pointing to the local host.

    Not sure where i went wrong.

    Hey Rob,

    It might be how the data was originally saved. Where all of the image paths stored in the database? The plugin doesn't replace any paths stored in templates (php files).

    Also the replace feature does an exact replace. So if you had the old URL as http://www.myoldurl.com and others were entered in as just 'myoldurl.com' with out the www then the non 'www' links would still stay the same.

    I have a todo item in the queue to repair this in a future version so it will catch multiple scenarios...

    Hey mate,

    Thanks for looking into this. I am using a themed framework (Ultimatum) to build the sites, so it may have something to do with that directly. Will post on there, and see what others have come up against, as i know that they have members using your plugin.

    Thanks again.

    Sounds good! I have another version coming out in a few weeks, it won't have support for these issues, but they will be added to the todo list...

    I'm also using Ultimatum and although the images are all transferred, featured images and slideshow images etc. can't be found when run site.

    Has this issue been resolved please?

    You will need to validate the report on the last page of the installer to see if you had any errors. Also check your wp-config.php and make sure its configured correctly...
