Support » Plugin: Auto Image Attributes From Filename With Bulk Updater » Not good with Cyrillic filenames!

  • I am deleting this plugin becouse I can not use Cyrillic names with it!

    I would be perfect if it could use a Cyrillic name from a Files title, not a Latin name from its address. Now it is almost useless for me.
    Back to searching a good plugin.

    Hello @alatena

    Thanks for the feedback, I tested this and found this to be true. Here is the reason and solution.

    Turns out, the PHP function basename used here is the cause.
    Here is a related discussion –

    Here is the solution that worked for me and you will probably need your host’s help:

    – Added setlocale(LC_ALL, 'C.UTF-8'); to wp-config.php and that was it.
    – Ask your host for a list of available locale’s. Running the command locale -a in linux will do it.
    – Here is the list I got –
    – Try each of those and upload an image and see if that helps.
    – In my case, only C.UTF-8 worked.

    Please let me know how that goes. Best regards.

    Thank you for your detailed answer. To be honest this is Greek to me, but I will contact my host for help.

    Hello @alatena

    Did you hear back from your host? Any luck so far?




    Thank you for your quick answer.

    Regrettably this solution does not work with shared hosting, I need a VPS hosting (my host said do). But it is too expensive for my hobby. 🙁

    Thank you again for trying to help.
