Thank you for your quick response and update. The new ‘username’ rule works great on new uploads but doesn’t work on bulk actions>update filename for old media. Please could you make that work there too?
Regarding the ‘Caption’, similar to the auto fill alt text feature but instead to auto fill with the new filename with rules. Eg. I upload ‘photo_01.jpg, new filename with my custom rules becomes ‘Ray_Photowebsite’, and the caption also auto fills with ‘Ray_Photowebsite’. And also for this to work in bulk actions>update filename for old media too.
Quick question at the moment you can update the filename but are you able to update the ‘Title’ of the media with the rules too?
I’m finding your plugin to be a great solution to standardising naming conventions of media where you don’t have control on uploads and existing media.

You’re welcome 🙂
The username works getting the current logged username. That’s why it shouldn’t be working on old media.
However I can create another one, maybe an “Author Username” rule. It would get the media’s author name instead. Do you think it would help you?
I’ll work on the caption issue you mentioned
Regarding the title, no. I’m trying to stick to the filename only for now.
And thanks!September 23, 2018 at 6:58 am #99984
I see, yeah a new ‘author username’ rule will work great.

Hi again Ray.
Instead of creating the author username I changed the way the username rule works.
Now it will try to get the media authorname in the first place. If it’s not possible it will get the current username.
I just updated it on version 1.0.8. Please check it out 🙂September 28, 2018 at 1:11 pm #99986
Regarding updating old media, I managed to get it to work great sometimes. If I do multiply photos it will not work. If I reactivate the plugin it will work on on 1 photo, sometimes. I’ve tried to see if there any repro steps for this bug but it’s too inconsistent. I have about 1000+ existing photos that I want to slowly batch rename with the new filename & Caption.
Regarding uploading new photos, this has been working great with no problems with getting the username of many different members.
The other thing missing is copying the new filename structure on the ‘caption’ as I will be displaying this caption for the thumbnails.
Thanks again for all your help.
