    Transferring Links to Live site.


    Hiya,

    I was wondering what the best practices were to change the links from test.yoursite.com/whatever to yoursite.com/whatever

    Do you change them on the test site to what they will be, or do you change them once they're live?

    Also, is there a plugin that changes this globally within wordpress to save going through every single page?

    With thanks

    Alex.

    Best way to do this is to log in to your hosting account (cpanel) ---> domains ----> redirects----> then chose
    301 redirect | From test subdomain | To example.com/whatever If you are talking about redirecting full subdomain to example.com/whatever

    If not, use WordPress plugin "simple 301 redirect". Easy to use.
