search & replace in db rec'd after plugin install? (3 posts)

    I just created a subdomain "up" to point to /wp-content/uploads and installed & activated the plugin. (My goal is to speed page loading time.)

    Nothing has noticeably changed on the site though. The image files are still being served through the old domain & url. If I click on an image, I can manually change the url to use the new subdomain, and yes the image still loads, happily.

    Just wondering what the next step might be if I want to have some or all of my blog posts point to the new subdomain for serving image files?

    Does this plugin work "retroactively" or only for newly uploaded media?

    Thanks!

    In other words, my question is:

    1) what do those two fields do on the settings/media page, and

    2) are there other steps that users of this plugin sometimes take after installation?

    I know plugin creators don't always feel moved to "recommend" sweeping manually-performed database changes for all users and that sort of thing. :)

    Hello.

    1) They only allow you to set the values. WordPress does the rest: it's a featured that has been only hidden, not removed (an other way to say "all the plugin does is display 2 fields, that's all").

    2) Create your subdomain in your hosting panel, move your medias into the new folder. If you have images in your posts, you have to change their URL manually (so, yes, a search/replace would be great I guess).
