I recently migrated from a wordpress.com blog to a self-hosted wordpress.org blog. The URL to the website is http://wordlesstech.com/
I exported the old blog’s content in xml format and then imported it in the new one. I ticked the box import images and download files when prompted. The problem now is that the images in the posts still have the old URL. After using the search and replace plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-and-replace/ in order to replace the images old URLs with the new URLs the images still appear to be unattached in the Media Library even though the link in the posts points to the images in the new .org blog. Can anyone help please? There are thousands of posts on the website and so I can not manually attach all the images… Is there a better way?
Thanks for you help!
