Fixing Broken Images in KYM Entries

So you might have noticed there are broken image embeds all over KYM entries. This is because we had to move all the images from our old server to a new one. We’ve been working on our back-end to replace these broken image URLs, and if you can help, it’d be tremendously appreciated!

If you have editorship on one or more entries, you can help by taking these steps in the entries:

1. Identify the dead URL by looking for codes containing /i/ or /system/ in the entry w/ FIND function (ctrl + F):


(ex: http://knowyourmeme.com/i/4097/original/cornifykym.jpg)

2. Locate, copy & paste the photo # ID in the same image url:


(ex: http://knowyourmeme.com/i/4097/original/cornifykym.jpg)

3. Retrieve the correct image url by accessing the /photos page:


(ex: type in http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/4097)

4. Copy & paste in the new image url in replacement:


(ex: http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/004/097/cornifykym.jpg?1318992465)

5. OPTIONAL / It’d be really really awesome if you can hyperlink the images to the individual /photos/ pages while you’re on the task!


(ex: "http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/004/097/cornifykym.jpg?1318992465":http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/4097)

Thanks as always and cheers!
