Media File Renamer

This plugins allows you to rename physically the media files by updating their titles. It also updates theirs links in the posts automatically.

2.4.0

  • Fix: There was a possibility that the image sizes filenames could be overwritten wrongly.

2.3.8

  • Update: Rename the GUID (File Name) is now the default. Too many people think it is a bug while it is not.

2.3.6

  • Add: UTF-8 support for renaming files. Before playing with this, give it a try. Windows-based hosting service will probably not work well with this.
  • Info: I would be also really happy if you could review the plugin (https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/media-file-renamer), share your current issues with me and also the features you would like the most. Thanks a lot! :)

2.3.4

  • Fix: Auto-Rename was renaming files even though it was disabled.
  • Update: If Auto-Rename is disabled, the Media Library column is not shown anymore, neither is the dashboard (they are useless in that case).

  • Add: Metadata containing '%20' instead of spaces are now considered too during the renaming.

2.2.2

  • Add: Option to automatically sync the alternative text with the title.
  • Add: Filters and Actions to allow plugins (or custom code) to customize the renaming.

  • Change: Handle the media with 'physical' issues.

0.9.4
