I've exported data from my dev server and imported it to my prod server.
One template is listing child pages and uses $page->guid to get link to page.

The problem is that this link still points to my internal dev server.

Has anyone else had similar problems? And if yes, how do I solve it without having to edit my DB directly?

The GUID is not an URL. Use get_permalink() to get the correct URLs.

Just ignore the GUID. It is – as the name says – an identifier.

Yeah, that's what I did in the end. Thanks :) – Steven Sep 11 '12 at 9:33
