    I recently switched hosts, and my images were working before I made the switch, however now they don't seem to be. When I preview the post in admin I can see the files there but not on the site itself. The images are being pulled from another server in the database... I don't understand. Halp? :(

    Do you have a link?

    Do a page source <ctrl-u> on most browsers, and see what the link is pointing to, to start....

    I have. And I believe I did it correctly. I mean the post are still there. The images aren't being hosted on my server, yet don't work. Well only in preview.

    I should also mention I'm running this instance of WP on Windows as opposed to linux.

    The images aren't being hosted on my server

    So where are they hosted?

    Blogspot. Like I said, I can view the images when I do a preview of the post. Just not on the site itself. And there are about 200+ posts.

    You need to move all of the images over from Blogspot first.

    I shouldn't have too. Like I said I can view them when I preview and see the code pulling them from blogspot. I shouldn't have to change it.

    It is quite likely that your host does not allow hotlinking, you are basically using them now as a CDN, which they likely charge for.

    That can't be the case, because like I said, I can preview the posts with the images there.
