Support » Fixing WordPress » Setting up a new site while the old still running

  • Resolved mixalisen


    Hi guys,
    First of all i want to apologize for my bad English. I will try to explain my thought as simply i can. I am totally newbie with sites so please forgive me if my questions are a little bit (or much) naïve.

    I have a site online already at the moment and i am preparing a new version of my site in wordpress. Let’s assume that this url link is my present site that is on-line at the moment:

    The new site i am working at the moment has the following url:

    The problem is that my new site will have around 900 active links-url’s when will be ready. So it will be very difficult for me to change all the url’s by removing the “test13” part and leave only the from each link.
    Is it possible to set up my new site with the same url as my site that is on-line right now? Or, is there a way to remove the “test13” part of the url of my new site from all the links at once when it is ready to go on-line?
    Thank you very much for your time reading my questions

  • Here is a very handy tool for updating URL’s across an entire WordPress database, I use this when moving from a staging domain to a new production domain. your database first, just in case.

    If you have hardcoded links in your template files, you will have to updates as well but I would hope that everything in there is relatively linked. I use PHPStorm to search entire directories for the staging URL while running the database search & replace linked above. I am sure there are free file searching tools you can find on the web though.


    many many thanks for your reply…! You are a saver…!
