ExpressionEngine stores your website URL and Server Path in a ridiculous number of places. REElocate helps you update these in one simple step.
Often when you are developing an EE site, you will have it running on a test URL or test server, while your client edits content, tests features etc.
When you move to the production location, you find out that ExpressionEngine stores your sites URL in hundreds of places, as well as the server path (document root). OK, maybe that is a slight exaggeration, but on average REElocate finds over 30 settings which need updating. Worse, these are spread between many different configuration pages all over the place - from regular settings, channel settings, upload settings etc… the list goes on.
Why ExpressionEngine can’t just store all these as relative URLs by default, giving users one simple place to update their base_url is beyond us. But never fear, dear EE-lovers, because REElocate is here to quickly update your site’s URL in one clean sweep*
* some extensions follow the EE trend, and also store your website URL and server path again (e.g. Channel Images). REElocate doesn’t yet look through the settings of these plugins, but this may be added as a feature in future (every plugin would need separate detection, so it would be much nicer if these plugins just started using relative paths!)
