  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.

This has become my go-to tool for tidying up website media names and titles. Thanks for a great plugin.

What a pretty name that is reborn from his ashes for an image that has lost its bad characters!

I made a mistake by renaming a lot of files with the wrong names, and it would be a pain in the ass to delete and reupload them one by one. Luckily, this plugin exists.

Tested with caution as there are horror stories from renaming media files. So far, so good. Thanks for writing this, it's a major timesaver.

C'est vraiment dommage de devoir cliquer sur "Indiquer plus de détails" pour renommer son média.
