I recently (well, this year) merged my business website and personal blog together. Consequently, old links in my blog posts, attachments, and pages were still pointed at my old domain name. Although I have a redirect on that domain to my new one, I’d rather just have everything updated to my new URL in case I ditch ownership of my old domain in the future. But I definitely did NOT want to go through every post and change every link, so here’s what I did instead!
Velvet Blues Update URLs plugin updates:
- Links in pages, posts, and revisions
- Attachment links (for images, documents, and other media)
- URLs in custom fields and meta boxes
- URLs in excerpts
I’ve used this plugin numerous times for client sites as well–I love how easy it is to use, and how quick everything gets updated. It’s not just for new domains–if you move WordPress to a new directory or subdomain you’ll need to update your URLs as well.
You can download the Velvet Blue Update URLs plugin here, or just search for it from your WP admin.
