Media File Renamer

Auto-rename the files when titles are modified and update and the references (links). Manual Rename is a Pro option. Please read the description.

2.7.8

2.7.6

  • Add: New option to remove the ad, the Flattr button and the information message about the Pro.

2.7.4

  • Fix: Renaming slug was not working well after latest WordPress updates

2.7.2

  • Fix: Use direct links for all my images and links to follow WordPress rules.

2.7.1

  • Info: A file mfrh_custom.php has been added. If you are an advanced users or a developer, please have a look at the FAQ here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/media-file-renamer/faq/. Since I am only one developer, I can't cover all the renaming cases we have (since sometimes plugins keep their own links to the filenames; such as WooCommerce). That will make it easy to advanced users to push Media File Renamer to cover more and more special cases.

2.6.9

  • Change: Modified description and information about the mfrh_url_renamed and mfrh_media_renamed filters.

2.6.8

  • Add: New option to force renaming file (even though the file failed to be renamed). That will help PRO users to fix their broken install, often after a migration for example (often related to change of hosting service using different encoding).

2.6.7

  • Fix: Click on lock/unlock doesn't take you back to the first page anymore.

2.6.6

  • Fix: Little naming issue when numbering + custom filter is used.

2.6.0

  • Add: Lock/Unlock icons in the Media Manager.
  • Add: Rename depending on the title of the post the media is attached to.

2.5.0

  • Update: WordPress 4.4.
  • Add: Add -2, -3, etc... when filenames are similar. Pro only.

2.4.2

  • Fix: There was a glitch when .jpeg extension were used. Now keep them as .jpeg.

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.

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).

2.3.2

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

2.3.0

  • Add: Update the metadata (true by default).

2.2.8

  • Fix: Guid was renamed wrongly in one rare case.

2.2.6

  • Fix: Double extension issue with manual renaming.

2.2.4

  • Fix: Couldn't rename automatically the files without changing the titles, now the feature is back.
  • Fix: Better 'explanations' before renaming.
  • Fix: Should work with WPML Media now.
  • Fix: Manage empty filenames by naming them 'empty'.

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.
  • Fix: Avoid to rename file if title is not changed (annoying if you previously manually updated it).
  • Change: Plugin functions are only loaded if the user is using the admin.

2.2.0

  • Add: Many new options.
  • Add: Pro version.
  • Add: Manual file rename (Pro).
  • Update: Use actions for renaming (to facilitate support for more renaming features).

2.0.0

  • Fix: Texts.

1.9.8

  • Fix: Versioning.

1.9.4

  • Add: New option to avoid to modify database (no updates, only renaming).
  • Add: New option to force update the GUID (aka "File name"...). Not recommended at all.
  • Fix: Options were without effect.

1.4

  • Fix: GUID issue.

1.3.4

  • Fix: issue with attachments without metadata.
  • Fix: UTF-8 title name (i.e. Japanese or Chinese characters).

1.3.0

  • Add: option to rename the files automatically when a post is published.

1.2.2

  • Fix: the 'to be renamed' flag was not removed in a few cases.

1.2.0

  • Fix: issue with strong-caching with WP header images.
  • Fix: now ignore missing files.
  • Change: renaming is now part of the Media Library with nice buttons.
  • Change: the dashboard has been moved to Tools (users should use the Media Library mostly).
  • Change: no bubble counter on the dashboard menu; to avoid plugin to consume any resources.

1.0.4

  • Change: Donation button (can be removed, check the FAQ).

  • Change: Scanning function now displays the results nicely.
  • Change: Handle the media with 'physical' issues.

0.9.4

  • Fix: Works better on Windows (file case).
  • Fix: doesn't add numbering when the file exists already - was way too dangerous.
  • Change: warns you if the Media title exists.

0.9.2

  • Fix: Removed a 'warning'.

0.9

  • Fix: Media were not flagged "as to be renamed" when the title was changed during editing a post.
  • Change: Internal optimization.
  • Add: Settings page.
  • Add: Option to rename the slug or not (default: yes).

0.8

  • Fix: Works with WP 3.5.
  • Change: Update the links in DB directly.

0.6

  • Fix: number of flagged media not updated straight after the mass rename.

0.54

  • Fix: the "file name" in the media info was empty.

0.52

  • Fix: SQL optimization & memory usage huge improvement.

0.5

  • Add: New view "To be renamed" in the Media Library.
  • Add: a nice counter to show the number of files that need to be renamed.
