Support » Plugin: Organize Media Library by Folders » 414 Request-URI Too Long error

  • Resolved LMP


    I saw that another user had this problem and you suggested decreasing the number of media items shown per page in WordPress.

    However, in my case this makes organizing media extremely tedious. I have to organize over 1500 media files into folders. If I can only view 10 or 20 media files at a time, it will take days to organize them all into folders.

    I read in this thread ( that it is possible to write code differently so that this error does not appear:

    However, note that if you’re actually running into this limit, you are probably abusing GET to begin with. You should use POST to transmit this sort of data

    Could you implement this into your plugin, so that the 414 does not occur, even with a large number of media files?

    Perhaps the 1500 media files will be moved to the same folder, but it would be more efficient to use a database tool such as phpmyadmin.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    The 1500 media files need to be organized into separate folders – not moved into a single folder. I need to manually select batches of 100-250 files and move them into a folder.

    After some experimentation, I found I could get around the 414 error with 50 media files showing at a time. It is tedious, but not too painful.
