media rename problems
By , for WP 3.9.1

This nice tool reqs a high resolution screen, on my 1280x800 laptop doesn't display all the columns properly. There is no horizonal scroll bar on the bottom of the page. The plugin also not always alert the user if the new filename is not valid (ex. includes spaces) or when same identical new names entered for multiple selected image files.

For SEO purposes this plugin is a must.
I had full control to rename the image file names and the title in the same time. And the beauty was that I renamed product images from WP-eCommerce plugin and it works flawlessly.
Highly recommended.

Works after a little tweek
By , for WP 3.6

Great little plugin (can't believe this basic functionality isn't part of the WordPress core)

I did have some trouble when I first installed it on WP3.6 when clicking Update on the edit media screen a little red box appeared next to the plugin's filename field.

I did some digging and for whatever reason the ajax response was returning a CRLF before the success code. Not sure if this was wordpress doing this or the plugin itself.

Anyway, quick 1 line fix, in the class-media-rename.php file on line 107 simply insert ob_clean(); just before the echo so the function becomes;

function ajax_rename() {
	if (check_ajax_referer('media_rename', '_wpnonce', 0)) {
		$retitle = $_REQUEST['type'] == 'rename_retitle';
		echo $this->do_rename($_REQUEST['post_id'], $_REQUEST['new_filename'], $retitle);

Hope it helps.
