Support » Plugin: Media File Renamer - Auto & Manual Rename » none of my images have actually been renamed

  • Resolved James Welbes


    I unlocked and renamed all images. Afterwards, one image was broken. I fixed that easily, but noticed that most of my files have not been renamed.

    They still have the same filename of “mockup-193hs8dh” etc that they had before.

    Is it because many of my images have the same exact title, therefore the plugin can’t rename them all the same file name?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Maybe not, I am not sure what the problem is exactly. How are your images used? Where? How are they written in the code? Are they in the HTML of your posts?




    Having same issue. Under the Before/After list within your plugin, I can see the filenames are changed. But when I go to an image, right click and save to view filename, it is still the same original title. I am using different filenames for each image.

    My images are being used on very simple, straightforward pages within a WordPress build. When I look at the HTML of the images, they have not changed; they still retain the original filename.

    Please let me know. Thank you,

    @jordy, not sure it matters how the images are being used. I was clicking the Rename button and then I went to Media and checked, and the file names were unchanged.

    I’m pretty sure my theory is correct. I went through and gave each image a unique title, and the Renamer has worked perfectly ever since.

    Maybe there’s something you could do for images that have the same exact title?

    I propose to both of you to contact me through I can create two installs and let you demonstrate the issue. I think you both having a different issue, and also I would like to make sure it happens on a clean version of WordPress, using your settings/theme/plugin.
