This plugin updates all URLs in the database after moving your site from one domain to another. It is useful for switching between development, testing and production stages.
Why this plugin ? WordPress stores absolute URLs in :
- posts (including pages and custom post types), drafts
- custom fields
- options (including ‘siteurl’ and ‘home’, in wp_options table)
- GUIDs (only for development)
When moving your website to a new domain, all these links will point to your old domain name and become outdated.
