This Worked When Nothing Else Did! Thank You!
Something caused all the media/ image links on the site to be broken. I noticed the permalinks were not the same as the file links. But, I could find nothing that would let me change the permalinks. With over 500 images I did not want to go through and fix them one by one. Plus, I just hate the new WordPress block editor. It drives me crazy just to add any content at all. So, fixing more than 500 image links was far more than I wanted to do. I managed to fix one but it took several minutes for just that one. I tried various other plugins to do with after migrating a site and… I don’t even remember what else now. I tried at least half a dozen different things and nothing worked. I was about to give up. I tried one more search in plugins for something that would help and I found “Disable Media Permalinks”. I didn’t think it would work. I read the FAQ, not really 100% understanding it. But, I thought I didn’t have much to lose at that point. If it didn’t work I would be no better or worse off, in theory. But… it did work!!! Perfectly, and easily. I only had to install it, then save the settings (without making any changes) to Settings>Media. I checked the media library and the images were back!!! Not just there but in all the posts on the live site too. Thank you so much for this plugin! How wonderful to find such an easy fix for a problem with WordPress. Thank you, again!
