I've just changed the domain name of my website hosting a wordpress installation.
After changing the domain name from olddomain.org to newdomain.org, I have properly changed the general settings with the new site url.
The blog works fine but...
...Images uploaded before the name change and embedded into articles posted before the change, are not shown. Why? Simple: because the URL of the images in the html code is absolute: http://www.olddomain.org/path/someimage.jpg
That is SO RIDICOLOUS!!! Why shouldn't wordpress simply generate RELATIVE urls such as somepath/someimage.jpg????
Ok there are plugins for automatically updating all url but they shouldn't be necessary.
I can't see why the editor generates a whole absolute url, that's simply, simply, simply stupid.
