Support » Plugin: Media File Renamer (Auto Rename) » Renamer not appending automatically as advertised

    The renamer claims “The first media you rename will actually get this filename; the next will be either not renamed or will have a counter appended to it.” However, when auto renaming, it simply lists the file again.

    Also, in the media editor, there used to be a notice when the name clashed, but now, after changing the title, the file simply stays the same until a unique title is entered.

    Hi Gal,

    Have you enabled the Numbering option? If no, and if the ideal filename exists already, this behavior will occur.

    Also, it could be a technical issue. If the Renamer fails to check the file, to find it or rename it, nothing will be done (but a look in your PHP Error Logs should tell us what happens).

    Numbering is a Pro feature, so no, it’s not enabled, which also means that it shouldn’t be mentioned, because it’s not going to work. In fact, “auto rename” should be disabled in this instance.

    Actually… the button is never disabled, so maybe I should just do this, you are very right!

    Hi Jordy,

    Please keep this unresolved until it’s actually resolved in a release.

    BTW, the renamer lists files with correct file names as requiring renaming and I think that’s related.

    That will be resolved in the next version 🙂 Indeed, I usually don’t track the issues and requests in the forum, which is why I mark them as resolved (that means they have been moved from the forum to my todo lists and Trello boards) but sure, we can do that.
