Tagged: relative URLs
I realizing that WP does not let me use relative URLs for document downloads. Kindof surprised. So… can you tell me if I can be confident in WP switching the new Root URL fro the old Root URL when I change domains, DNS, etc.? I’m getting ready to link up hundreds of documents in Choices… and want to be sure I can use Full URLs now, and that the URL will be swapped when I change it in the WP admin.
Not sure this is a template question.. although I hear this can vary depending on the framework.
No, wordpress will not as far as I know. If you insert a link to a document at http://yoursite.com/dev/myfile.pdf and then change the wordpress directory to be in your root, the file will be moved and the link will stay the same.
