    MIGRATED LIVE SITE – BROKEN LINKS, by leonalexander

    Hi Everyone, hope hope everyone is doing well.

    I’m a newbee so please excuse me.

    I’ve designed a website for a client, I’ve moved the site from local to live, hosting is through Godaddy.

    I’ve run into a few issues, some of the links on the new website are not working, I’ve been sitting in-front of my laptop trying to fix them for more than a week and to no avail.

    When I hover over the tabs/ buttons that are not working I can see the url is pointing towards the WordPress local (localhost:8888/tangledhairstudio/prices), surely what I want and what it should be is http://www.tangledhairstudio/prices ????

    HALF WAY DOWN THE PAGE, IN THE SERVCE “SECTION”, 3 RED TABS NAMED: “SEE ALL”

    I’ve used the WordPress plugins Search & Replace, Better Search Replace, Velvet Blue as well as using sql code to search and replace to edit parts of the url’s/links;…

    /** update URL in posts table **/
    UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = replace(guid, ‘http://localhost:8888/’,’http://www.’);

    /** update URL in posts table **/
    UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content, ‘http://localhost:8888/’, ‘http://www.’);

    /** update URL in postmeta table **/
    UPDATE wp_postmeta SET meta_value = replace(meta_value,’http://localhost:8888/’,’http://www.’);

    However, this worked by editing the url’s/ links in the database BUT, did nothing for the broken website links I was trying to change.

    nothing seems to work whether i’ve used a plugin, snippet of code or hardcoded each and every field in the database.

    ALSO, WHEN I VIEW THE WEBSITE ON MY MOBILE/ CELL, NONE OF THE IMAGES SHOW UP AND, SOME STUFF JUST SEEMS LITTLE OUT OF PLACE, I’M NOT SURE. ANY IDEAS?

    please please please could I get some help and ideas how I can get this site running smoothly without any errors.

    would much appreciate it,

    many thanks

    Leon
