I'm getting double slashes on my post and admin pages, but not on the main blog urls in the menu:

 

http://mysite.com/wo...../index.php

http://mysite.com/wo.....d/new-post

 

Where do I edit this out?

Check your wp-config.php file, you will notice there 2 main urls which you need to remove the end slash from them

 

As a note, when restoring, you can so this automatically by removing the end slash from your Install url option

Worked like a charm.  Thanks!  Smile

 

And for anyone who has a similar problem in the future.  Your wp password isn't going to work when you change the url to omit the double slash.  You aren't locked out, just request a new password. 

 

Well, my site is moved and restored.  For you guys who are having problems, most of it is probably because XCloner is nit-picky.  If you're moving to a new host or server, or simply restoring, try entering the details (especially the database) exactly as they are in your wp-config.php.  I had several problems but they were all user error.  Good luck!

 

And thank you for the use of your plugin, Xcloner!

Ovidiu,

 

Is the double slashes a 'feature' (read bug)? Does the latest version remove the feature (bug) or do I need to do the same mods when I move my blog (only used XCloner to backup so far)?

The double slash is not a bug, when restoring, you have the option to adjust your Install url: restore option to the desired url, by default XCloner was adding an extra slash there, causing Wordpress to add another one when displaying the site. Anyway, we have fixed that default value to be without a slash in the latest version.
