  1. Upload phoenix-media-rename folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. It is done! You can go to any media file single page and will notice the new field « Filename ». Bulk edit is also available at the « Media » listing page!


How to rename a single media?

Go to the Media section of the admin panel and open a media of your choice. You will see a new field named « Filename » and your current filename in it. Change it to whatever you want the new name to be and hit the « Update » button.

How to bulk rename medias?

Go to the Media section of the admin panel, select the « Rename » or « Rename & Retitle » bulk action (depending on if you want the media get retitled too) from the dropdown, check the medias you would like to rename and change their filenames using the « Filename » fields at the last column. When you are done, hit the « Apply » button and let the plugin do its magic!

Can I use the plugin to rename medias via code?

Sure, you can use the « do_rename » static function, located at the Phoenix_Media_Rename class. Prototype: Phoenix_Media_Rename::do_rename($attachment_id, $new_filename, $retitle = 0). On success the function returns 1, and on error – the error message.



Excellent job. I might translate it to Croatian if you agree.

This is AWESOME! 🙌🏻

My client didn't title any of the images as suggested, so I found THE PHOENIX and easily retitled all image file names and titles POW!! #Grateful 100 and will now use this for many of my disorganized ha clients!

Works Well

Just updating the name of images in the gallery/media and works as advertised. I was please that the image name was updated on installed pages
