Support » Plugin: Media Library Assistant » Different Parts of the File Name re-mapped to Alt. Text

  • Resolved Matthias


    Hi David,

    My second question about how to use your amazing software.

    I use a very structured filename system. Like:


    I wonder if it is possible to convert the different parts of the structure into a Title like this:

    VultureAtSunset in Serengeti, Tanzania, Africa

    I really have no clue if, or if so, how to do this.

    Thanks for this interesting question, which is similar to the one posed in this recent topic:

    Possible to use regular expressions by upload in bulk edit?

    You can find more information in the “Regular Expression Features” section of the Settings/Media Library Assistant Documentation tab. Note that you may need to install the Development Version of your expression includes backslash characters in the Upload New Media Bulk Edit area.

    I am confident that you can use these MLA features to accomplish your goal, but I acknowledge that regular expressions can be complex and I consider this an advanced application of MLA’s features. I am marking this topic resolved, but please update it if you have problems or further questions regarding the solution for your particular application. Thanks for your kind words and your interest in the plugin.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your prompt response and for your great feedback. I’m very happy to hear that this is a viable solution and I will try to find help with the RegEx in an appropriate forum for that. Once I have a formula I might get back to you in a new topic.

    Once again thank you for your amazing piece of software and for your even better level of support!


    Just want to express huge thank you for your plug in. Fixed ALT issue for 1600 images with one click! Amazing!
