Media Rename
[resolved] Retitle - improvement suggestions (4 posts)

    1. I love the retitle feature - it automatically capitalizes the text and removes dashes and underscores. I have tons of files that I uploaded earlier and I would like to automatically retitle them in bulk based on the algorithm above but without renaming them. Unfortunately 3.2 version of the plugin doesn't automatically bulk retitle without renaming the file at same time.

    2. I can rename and retitle in one step only from the library window. In the edit media window for the individual file I can only rename and manually retitle, but can't automatically retitle based on the algorithm above. Is it possible to extend the autoretitle feature into the edit media window?

    3. When I change the file name in media library window, I still have to add the checkmark manually. Can the plugin automatically add the checkmark the moment I start editing the file name?

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    About (1) - the default media name is taken automatically by WordPress from the filename. I guess you are talking about a case where you already have renamed your files but not retitled them and now you want only the retitling. Is that so?

    They sound good and I will add them in the next version of the plugin :)

    Thank you!

    As I can see, WordPress makes a title out of the file name, like this:

    File name: blue_sky.jpg
    Title: blue_sky

    Your plugin would do:

    File name: blue_sky.jpg
    Title: Blue Sky

    which looks much better.

    So I would like to be able to bulk retitle without renaming.

    Total +1 on option to retitle without renaming.

    I'm migrating a site where the .pdf file are numbers and arbitrary. Yet they had nice titles for users to browser. This would be perfect to quickly rename a lot of similarly-named files with a copy/paste and tweak).

    Possible?
