Moving Images Without Breaking Links

Moving Images Without Breaking Links was created by savethefrogs
Hi,
I am setting up my JCE media folder (Image Manager Extended) and just tested what happens if I move an image to a different folder. It appears that Joomla does not automatically update associated links in articles. How am I able to move images without causing broken links?

I found this article:
www.ostraining.com/support-forum/joomla-...hout-losing-linking/

But I assume there must be an easier way.
Thank you!
Kerry

Hi Kerry,

Yes, use DB Replacer instead :)
www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/db-replacer/

That's what he ended up using in the end and it worked well for him.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

Kind regards,
Nick

Thanks Nick,
Do you think I should stick with NoNumber's free versions for a while and make sure I use them, or should regular Joomla users go ahead and get 150Euro 1-year or 500Euro lifetime bundles?

Hi Kerry,

Free version does a great job and personally think it should be enough, however depends on your needs. Check the Free vs Pro features to make a decision: www.nonumber.nl/extensions/dbreplacer#free-vs-pro
