After you move your WordPress site to a new domain name, you will notice that all internal links to pages and references to images are not updated, images are not showing up because your images and other links and references are pointing towards your old domain name. This tutorial is about a plugin that fixes this thing up in just a click. It automatically updates old URLs and links in your website.
You can add a Copy URL link in admin area all posts & pages list and enable quick copying of existing post/page permalinks to your clipboard.
