WordPress AutoMedia


This is a very basic plugin, intended to add your FTP uploads directly to your
Media Library for easy publishing. No more moving files around from phones
and cameras in order to publish them. Simply batch upload or use the WordPress
AutoMedia app for Android powered phones to get the photos to your server, and
then this plugin will handle adding to your media library automatically.

Download the Android App at

Note: the app was created on an Android 2.3 device and does crash on many newer devices. I
don’t have the time to create a new version right now, but if anyone wants to step in and
help out, please get in contact with me. Otherwise, give it a shot, it’s free …

Eventually, I’d like to see this rolled into core and the WordPress app.

Note: I’m all ears for future versions. Tell me what you would like to see
improved/added/changed and I will do my best.



  1. Upload the wp-automedia directory containing ‘wp-automedia.php’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Download the Android ‘WordPress AutoMedia’ app from Google Play and follow the simple instructions.
  4. Start taking pics! They’ll automatically appear in your WordPress Media Library for publishing!
  5. If you’re using FTP instead of the app, upload your photos to /wp-content/uploads/automedia/ for proper indexing.
