  3. Mannnnn if I could hug you I would. I use Woocommerce with Stripe, so I needed an SSL first. I use GoDaddy hosting and my new url was nested under an old one, so I didnt want the SSL on the old url, so I made the new url primary. After that I also. I changed themes, but forgot I changed url structure, which changed my file structure also. Thinking the issue was the theme, I was about to about to scrap the whole site and start from beginning. You saved me hours!

  12. What if I am able to upload my images to WP and they are not broken. The issue is when I insert them into a blog post and update the post, the images show as broken.

    Thank you so much. I had this problem for months, until I tried your Permalinks tip. This solved the missing images!

    Why even bother with custom path and not to leave default one which is dynamic and doesn’t has to be changed after migration?
