Media Sync

説明

You can scan all files that are in uploads directory and see which ones are actually in Media Library and which ones are just sitting there. Then you can select files you want to import to the database and therefore make them available in Media Library.

You can also use FTP to upload your files to uploads directory and bring those files into Media Library. 

Disclaimers

Please read before adding a support topic. Reviews are not intended for support or suggestions.

  1. “For developers”
    This plugin makes database changes (wp_posts and wp_postmeta tables), and it was primarily developed to help other developers that are aware of the consequences.

  2. “1 file first”
    Please be careful and try to import only one file first, to see if it works.

  3. “All at once”
    This plugin is focused on scanning, selecting, and importing all files at once. So it might not be great for huge amounts of files, since it can use up a lot of memory. Future versions will hopefully solve that problem. For now, you can try to go to Settings -> Media Sync and set it to scan only a specific directory.

  4. “Your setup is unique”
    Please keep in mind that each WordPress installation is unique, so it’s quite possible this plugin will not work in your case. If that happens, please turn on debugging in settings of this plugin, try to figure out why you have that problem, and then describe what you found in the Support section. The more details we have – it’s more likely the problem will be solved.

Ignored files

  • index.php,
  • various hidden files (.DS_Store, .htaccess),
  • WP generated thumbnails (files ending with for example -100×100.jpg),
  • WP generated scaled images (files ending with -scaled).

This is now configurable with a custom hook function and it can totally overwrite these rules or add additional ones.

インストール

  1. Upload media-sync directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

FAQ

Stuck at importing / spins endlessly

Please try to increase max_execution_time (and/or memory_limit) in php.ini on server (as described here). Or if you have too many files, try going to Settings -> Media Sync and change “Scan directory” to some inner folder.

Files not showing up in Media Library

Please make sure “Dry Run” option is NOT checked. This is a safety mechanism to make sure you know what you’re doing, so be careful, try it first with just one file.

Doesn’t work

Please first try to turn on debugging by adding this: define('WP_DEBUG', true); to your wp-config.php and check Network tab in Chrome DevTools to see what is going on in the background. Then report actual errors since it’s hard to help without knowing the error which is causing the problem.

I used the WP import/export tool to move just my 8+ years of blog articles to a brand-new website I was making. Thought I would be missing many images as this has happened to me in the past and sure enough, spot checking my articles proved that many months were missing. This plugin worked well - I had my backups of uploads folders and simply uploaded my images to the new host and then used the plugin to sync them to the media library and they appeared back in my blog articles - worked very well. Thank you.

I panicked after reinstalling wordpress and realizing I had to upload almost 1000 images and a few videos. Then a quick google search turned up Media Sync. That was less than an hour ago and all my images and videos are now in my media library. I'm glad I didn't delete those directories. Whew!

This plugin saved me hours of manual work and helped me get a half a gig uploads folder down to 250MB. Interface was simple enough to understand. This was a perfect little package.

I ported a site from a proprietary CMS to WordPress and this plugin did all the media library inserts for me. It worked flawlessly! The move would have been a lot harder without this plugin. Thanks!
