How to Rename Images and Media Files in WordPress
I just thought you might want to know that I downloaded this to my site. It not only crashed the site, it left connections open causing my server to throttle me. My site was down for a week while bluehost try to figure this out. Then ultimately I had to install an old black back up which caused me to lose about 50 hours of hard work. I do not know if it’s because I have avada or what. I will say that it is $40 now if you want to activate the plug-in to rename files. It renamed my files without me having to pay, but of course I lost $250 due to hiring a developer to undo all of the havoc and at least a weeks worth of hard work. I would strongly caution anyone that is using avada not to use this plug-in .
How to Easily Rename uploaded Media Files in WordPress
The same thing happened to me. I wrote a post in Microsoft Word, added images also at the same time and then with the help of Mammoth plugin, I imported this .docx file to WordPress post editor. What was unexpected was that the plugin, without asking, not only imported the image files but also named them automatically and the names assigned were not related to the content of images. I took it for granted that there should be for sure a built-in option in WordPress which could allow us to change the names of uploaded images. But, to my disappointment, I couldn’t find such an option.
