How do you move the links? IS this something we can help with?

Hi Steve,

I'm always willing to help... Are the image links that need to be migrated only the 'uploaded' ones - i.e. web links migrate OK? [i'd suspect that web image URLs pass through without mods being needed.]

Also, might the 'transform' be consistent/uniform in any way in moving the image links? - something that a program could be used for to swap?

like = "http://oldurl.com/forumxxx/oldimageID"

>> "http://newurl.com/YYY/newforumzzz/newimageID"

???

Steve,I'm a new guy, but please let me know if I can be of assistance. I need to teach myself more of this anyway!

We are actually done with the conversion. Thanks for volunteering!
