Support » Plugin: Media File Renamer (Auto Rename) » Does Pro version allow changing the folder path.

  • Resolved matthewtbrown


    I need to change the file path on several pictures to get rid of dates put in the pathname by WordPress. Does the Pro version allow this?

    I have now turned off this feature in WP Gallery so this won’t happen again but there are several pathnames I’d like to clean up.

    Hi @matthewtbrown,

    The Pro version doesn’t do this. That said, in Media File Renamer, there is a global function available. This one:

    // Move the media to another folder (relative to /uploads/)
    function mfrh_move( $mediaId, $newPath )

    If you are a developer, or if you can find a developer to do that for you, you can go through all the Media entries you like, and move them to a different path. Media File Renamer will also update the references.

    Of course, you should be really careful when using this function, and a backup is necessary.

    There is no plan to add this in the Pro as it would complexify the plugin too much. However, Real Media Library uses this function and allows moving files physically.
