  • Resolved toniolol


    when I move from my old wordpress site to my new I used the plugin and after I saw some mistakes on photos’s url.
    I’ve made some update on my db to repair that and this is what was in error :

    Table : wp_posts
    Column : post_content
    Column : guid

    On that columns there were my old wordpress address.

    The guid field represents a unique identifier for a post (typically useful in RSS feeds AFAIK) so it shouldn’t matter if it’s referencing an invalid address. The only reason that it uses what looks like a permalink/shortlink is because that makes a simple, relatively good unique (and permanent) identifier. However it should NOT be treated as a URL or permalink (note that the guid element in the export file states that it isn’t a permalink in the isPermalink attribute).

    However there was some argument on for updating/changing the GUID on import in case of duplicating the ‘unique’ field.

    Thanks for the guid explain.
    I’ve updated both guid and post_content because my old wp site didn’t exist anymore.
    I can’t remember before my update if the matter was in guid or post_content but the matter was on img src which were on my old www wp site.
    After my replace in my update everything is ok.
