If I go into Edit Media and change the filename to what I want and click Update, it updates the filename as expected. If I then decide to change the title, when I click update, I get this error:
“A file with that name already exists in the containing folder!”
Is there not a way to change just the title for media? I may want to bulk rename a bunch of pictures (filename1, filename2, filename3, etc.) but then edit each title individually (“Flower”, “Tree”, “Clouds”, etc.), but I can’t do that with your plug-in easily. Instead, it looks like I only have two options:
* Make sure I retitle at the same time as I rename. This means I can’t use the bulk editing because my titles don’t always match my filenames.
* Change the filename when I update the title and then change the filename back. This adds an extra step to the title update process.
Is this expected behavior?
