    Hello, I just transferred my site from a self hosted site back to wordpress.com. none of the images in my posts work anymore. I see that they are all pointed to the old media file …/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/…

    how do I get all of those images to resolve?

    The blog I need help with is prepperpenny.com.

    Hi there,

    If your self-hosted site is still publicly available, our import tool will grab those images and import them into your WordPress.com site. However, if the self-hosted site isn’t available, our importer can’t get the images in order to import them here. In that case, you’ll need to upload the images manually and re-insert them in your imported posts.

    Please let me know if you have any questions about that!

    The self-hosted site can be available if I change the DNS settings back to point to that host. Will that work?

    Yes, that should work! :) Once you switch the DNS back to that host, reply here to let me know. I’ll have our team fix up the images for you.

    OK, I have changed the DNS back to Dreamhost. Thank you for your help. :)

    Do you have an idea how long it will take?
