[resolved] Thumbnail images missing when WordPress domain changed (2 posts)

    Using Select Business Directory Plugin version
    I just moved my WordPress site from http://www.oldurl.com to http://www.newurl.com
    In that process I seem to have lost all of the thumbnail images for every listing.

    Is there anything I can do to get them back?
    I don't want to have to go into each directory listing to re-assign.

    Hi Tania,

    Well, the images would be saved with domain-specific URLs, so they are all prefixed by oldurl.com. There are a couple of ways to handle this:

    - You can change your .htaccess to auto-redirect requests from oldurl->newurl for images.
    - You can go into the database and update the records used by BD with queries, although this will still be a one-at-a-time fix.

    Basically, there's no easy answer here, as we have to save the location of the images for display and it happened to keep the URL in it.
