Moving content from one WP site to another

These procedures appear to work well when moving from one SoIC WP site to another SoIC WP site on the same server.
EX: testcsi.soic.indiana.edu to csi.soic.indiana.edu

Moving from an SoIC WP site to a 3rd party hosted site does not work well, and required extensive work updating images, links, and settings.
EX: dwray.wphomes.soic.indiana.edu to bloomingtonyachtclub.org
