RE: the current replacement site directory was imported from the active site. The hyperlinks for the images obviously dont match so I was wondering if there was an easy way in connections to update all the hyperlinks for the image locations?
Images added to the bio and/or notes fields? Or, the photo and logo image fields?
RE: There have been some changes to the directory as time went on. I planned on exporting the most current directory we have and importing it into the current replacement site. Is there a way to (or even need) to wipe the current directory away so the newest import wont conflict with anything?
There are two directories which are the “same” but out of “sync” (for the lack of better terms). Is that a correct interpretation of the question. If it is, if you export the current directory into the out of date directory the result will be “duplicates” of all the entries which exist in both directories. Or worse, if you map the Entry ID column of exported file, you would update that Entry ID on import instead, but the ID of the entries will not be the same between the two directory instances. So the result would be updating an entry with another entry’s info.
So, I guess the short answer is it might be best to first delete the existing entries before you import.
Hope this helps!
