I have a site which uses Wordpress short-links (Wordpress 5.3). I need to migrate the site to another domain. However, the export/import tools do not alter the short-links which continue to point to the original domain. I have hundreds of these links. Is there a way of expanding all the links prior to the export, or, alternatively, re-point the base used for the short-link from the old to new domain? Is there another option?

  • If they are stored in the database, you can use a database migration plugin instead of export/import and that will resolve not only this issue but others you may not have noticed yet. If not - what exactly are these "short links"? There's nothing called short links in WP core so you may have luck looking at the documentation for the theme or plugin used to create them. – WebElaine Mar 5 at 14:21
