Do I need to update internal links after uploading?

If I create a site on Local and then upload it to Flywheel, will all the internal hyperlinks still work or will I need to manually update them ?

Hey @bizzy, it sort of depends on how you create those links. Local won’t update any urls that are set within the files, so if you are hard-coding something like this in the theme, then Local can’t update the url:

<a href="http://example.local/sample-page">Sample Page</a>

If the links are all within the database, for example, created using the WP admin, then those urls will be updated to the remote ones.
