    Does this plugin support import/export to CSV for bulk edit?

    My need is to bulk edit to remove all the hyphens in the images names (not file names), alt and caption. Is it a suitable plugin for the task?

    Thanks for your question. Thanks as well for adding the details of what you’re trying to accomplish; very helpful.

    You can find quite a log of information about MLA’s CSV support in this earlier topic and the topics it links to:

    Announcing the MLA CSV Data Source Example plugin

    The example plugin is in the current MLA version so you can ignore the instructions about the Development Version. Here is another topic with a minor update:

    download url

    However, you don’t need to go to the trouble of export-edit-import for your immediate task. You can use MLA’s IPTC/EXIF mapping rule support for tasks such as replacing hyphens with spaces or other routine text-editing chores. Here are two earlier topics that will give you a better understanding of what’s possible:

    Bulk replace a word in media titles

    Combine image ISO, Shutter speed, Aperture with decription

    I hope that gives you what you need to complete your work. I am marking this topic resolved, but please update it if you have problems or further questions regarding the above suggestions or the earlier topics. Thanks for your interest in the plugin.

    If you are still interested in exporting data to a CSV file you will find this recent post of interest:

    download url – Export Item Values

    If you have a chance to try the new tool let me know how it works for you. Thanks!
