Why are photos not showing after migration from Typepad?

  1. I migrated from Typepad and all was well. Then I reset nameservers to redirect the domain name from Typepad to WP and now no photos are showing up in my old posts. And when I go back to my Typepad blog no photos show up there either. When I click on the link where the photos are supposed to be, it takes me to the same post on my new WP blog and there is no photo. I have tried migrating again and cleared cache & cookies and still no photos. I'd love any suggestions anyone has for me. Thanks.

  2. Hi there,
    I tagged this thread for Staff support with your import. If you subscribe to the thread you will be notified when they respond.

  3. Thanks so much. Total newb here.

  4. You're welcome. :)

  5. Hi there,

    I've alerted our internal team, and I'll let you know what they uncover.


  6. Thank you.

  7. One of the team let me know that he's starting work on this earlier today, just to keep you in the loop.

  8. Thanks so much. I jumped the gun and resubmitted another help ticket since I had not heard back. Hope It doesn't gum up the works. Thanks for keeping me in the loop.

  9. Hi there,

    I apologize for the long delay - I went ahead and closed the other ticket, since we are already working on this. No gumming up has occurred!


  10. Thanks again.

  11. Hi, just to fill you in - the team member working on this is running a script to fix the URLs. I'm not sure how long it will take, but I'll let you know when it's completed.


  12. That is so excellent! I thought that the links were messed up but had no idea how to fix them. Thanks so much for the update. Y'all are awesome!

  13. Hi Zandyring,
    Any news on getting our photos to show up? We've made our blog private until the problem us resolved and really want to get it public again. Is there anything we can do to resolve the problem?

  14. At last I believe we've wrapped this up. At any rate, we've done all that we can with our our automated tools and some manual scanning of posts.

    Please review your site, check for any major issues, and let us know if we can help with anything else. If there's a method of downloading your images from TypePad as a backup, that'd be a good idea. I believe we've captured all of the images.

    There remain some references to old TypePad popup urls in the posts, but to the best of my knowledge, none of these are actually visibly clickable (I manually corrected the ones that were clickable). Cheers.

  15. Thanks so much. We really appreciate all your help.
