Velvet Blues Update URLs


If you move your WordPress website to a new domain name, you will find that internal links to pages and references to images are not updated. Instead, these links and references will point to your old domain name. This plugin fixes that problem by helping you change old urls and links in your website.

Vanliga frågor

Varför är mina URL:er inte uppdaterade?

URLs are only replaced when an exact match is found. Be sure that you have entered the correct url and hit submit. (Note: Matching is case-sensitive.)

Why do I see the message ”You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page”?

Make sure that the plugin is activated and that you are an administrator level user.

A real time-saver

This plugin is easy to use and works flawlessly. It's a real time-saver! Thank you making this plugin!

Very nice

I am a starter using WordPress. PlugIn did what it promised!


Holy mackerel, this is a good plugin! Does what it says on the tin. 🙂

Worked Partially

I had thought it worked initially when it showed that over 735 URLs were updated successfully. Only for me to find out that it didn't. I had to complete the migration using Go Live Update Url plugin.

Not sure what to think

I have a peer who uses this plugin for his migrations so I guess that it works. Or at least for him it does. The documentation is confusing and personally I don't think it gives a clear walk through on how to use the plugin. I was told that it was great for migrating websites so I downloaded it. So, I have my live website but I want to make a copy of the website for a staging site. It does not say whether it is going to affect the actual current live database of it is going to create an SQL dumpfile or zip/tarball that I can download and uplaod into the new database (which is what I wanted). Going on the assumption that you move your files and database over and then run the plugin on the new location, how is that possible if the database still points to your original site and just redirects you when you login? Thus, not sure what to think.
