Clean Image Filenames

Beskrivning

Filenames with special characters or language accent characters, like Château de Ferrières.jpg and smörgåsbord.png, can sometimes be a problem for browsers or servers. This plugin takes care of that and cleans the filenames of files uploaded to the WordPress media library.

This plugin cleans the filenames from special characters like exclamation marks, periods, and commas and accent characters like Swedish and German umlauts. Special characters are remove, accent characters are converted to their non-accent equivalent, and blank spaces are converted into dashes.

Easily set the plugin to clean the filenames of images only or all files uploaded to the media library. Developers can take advantage of the built in filter to get really specific about what file types to clean the filenames of.

Plugin filter for developers

Developers can get really specific about what file types to clean by using the clean_image_filenames_mime_types filter in their plugins or themes. When using this filter, settings saved through the settings page are overridden. For a complete list of mime types, see Wikipedia.

The following example would make the plugin clean the filenames for PDF, JPEG and PNG files only.

function my_clean_image_filenames_mime_types() {
    $mime_types = array(
        'application/pdf', 
        'image/jpeg', 
        'image/png', 
    );
    return $mime_types;
}
add_filter('clean_image_filenames_mime_types', 'my_clean_image_filenames_mime_types');

Vanliga frågor

Why does this plugin exist?

No matter how hard you try to teach people to name their files in a certain way before uploading, sooner or later you will end up with a media library with filenames like Château de Ferrières.jpg or Smörgåsbord.png. Sometimes browsers have a hard time displaying images with filenames like these and the images end up broken.

Can this plugin clean the filenames of existing files in the media library?

No, this plugin only cleans the filenames of files when they are being uploaded to the media library.

In Denmark, we use the letters æ, ø, and å, which by danish standards, are translated into ae, oe and aa when necessary. Many plugins similar to Clean Image Filenames, fails to do that properly. That's no catastrophe, its only media filenames after all, but you might as well get it right if possible. Futhermore, titles are left alone - that's a big plus. So the title of a file called "Æblegrød.jpg" stays that way, while the filename get converted to "aeblegroed.jpg", just as I need it. Lastly, this plugin, seems to be the only one of its kind, that has been tested with WordPress 5.1 - the others, while still working, seems abandoned. So - a big 5-star thank you from me. Bjarne
