...because it does not "bulk" register media, it bulk registers "some" of your media. Some it just leaves out. Doesn't tell you what it's leaving out, either, you have to hunt for it. All in all any time you save bulk uploading will be lost trying to find & reupload the things it didn't upload.MODERATOR: THIS IS NOT A SUPPORT REQUEST. I AM NOT LOOKING FOR SUPPORT WITH THIS PLUGIN. I AM NOT TRYING TO REPORT AN ISSUE TO THE DEVELOPER OR GET HELP FROM THEM. I AM REVIEWING MY EXPERIENCE OF IT FOR BENEFIT OF FUTURE PROSPECTIVE USERS.
I'm not giving a 1 star out of frustration or annoyance, but to get the developer's attention. In my case I uploaded 377 images using FTP. They are all in webp format. The extension is recognized by the plugin. After "Select & Register" the images are registered. However, when I go to the library, all I see are empty frames with the file name of the images, plus an extra string that is probably added by the registration process. If I want to use the plugin "Regenerate Thumbnails" to create images so I can see them in the library, it won't work. The string appended to the file name prevents the plugin from finding the original file on the server. I hope that with this information the developer can improve his plugin. I`m happy to change the amount of stars when this issue is solved. Thank you for your contribution.
Worked perfectly! Step 1: Ask your hosting company to move all the media files from wp content -> uploads of the old site over to the new siteStep 2: Use the Bulk Media Register on the old site to export a json fileStep 3: Use the Bulk Media Register on the new site to import a json fileDONE! All the images appear in the new media library with their correct date, alt text and title.
What I liked:
Recognizes existing thumbnails versions of the image and keeps them intact
Ajax operation, so not as likely to run into PHP timeout
Correctly recognizes if files are registered or not
Choose folder or subfolders to scan with "Select Register"
Thanks for a great plugin!
