I cloned one WP site to another domain. The restore seemed to work but the links on the nav menu still point to the old domain. What can i do?

Hi Paul, try and check your wp-config.php file, did the mysql details get updated with the new host ones? XCloner adds the new url's there along with the Relocate option.


Check also your Wordpress Settings ->General area and see if you can adjust the old site url from there.
