We have modified the way we manage site images to improve image availability.

If you host your own SPC-built Website delivered before September 10th, 2016, you will need to update your site in order for your site images to display correctly.

On October 8th, 2016 all old image URLs will no longer be available, so I urge you not to wait to complete the few short steps needed to address this important action.

If you have not taken action prior to October 8th 2016, the images on your Web 3.0 Website will no longer be visible.

This process should take no longer than 5 minutes.

Updating Site Image URLs

  1. Backup your site before attempting any Wordpress platform or Plugin updates. If you need a backup plugin, a highly rated one that is compatible with our theme is WP Clone by WP Academy: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-clone-by-wp-academy/. *You are solely responsible for maintaining backup best practices for your site.
  2. Install the Search and Replace Plugin by Inpsyde by logging in to your admin portal and navigating to "Plugins/Add New"
