Our scenario is a large MultiSite network, our team builds stage sites for clients by creating a new subsite on the network, so the URL for dev work and then for the client to preview is something like
Now once all content is good and the client OK's going live, the domain gets mapped and so now the live site url is something like
However, we now end up with a lot of wrong URL's in crawl reports, where links, images etc are pointing to the development URL.
- How do you handle the staging site development for urls?
- Is there a quality plugin or something for bulk updating all relevant URL's?
Note that I have explored the idea of altering host file and just building it out on the actual domain name, however that is not doable for half my team or any of the clients.
