Im building a backup to our intranet, due to some current issues with it. Anyway Im wondering
1) 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?
2) 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?

Images added to the bio and/or notes fields? Or, the photo and logo image fields?

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 If it is, if you export the current directory into the out of date directory the result will be “duplicates” of all the entries which exist in both directories.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.

Its the images on the front page of the directory before actually entering the employee’s bio so I guess the logo. The path to the photo is different on the old to the new so I will need to change all of them. Is there an easy way to do this without having to go into each member and change it?
Yes Ive decided to just delete all the entries and reimport the current one.

So, it is the entry’s logo? When you edit the entry in the admin on the source site, is the image you want to move in either the photo or logo fields?
How did you migrate the data from the source site to the destination site. I need those details in order to give you directions. Depending on the method, it could be as simple as copying the images folder from the source site to the destination site.
