I have finished the Korean translation for Enable Media Replace

By modelaid on May 26, 2023

I have finished the Korean translation.
I just want to say thank you for developing such a good plugin.
And I hope it will be translated into more languages so that many WordPress users can use it conveniently.

I replaced a file, but it didnโ€™t change!

By elotse on February 27, 2023

All the recommended action about cache I have tried.

I use WP 6.1.1 and the theme Astra plus

Upon further investigation, I found the following errors:
It only works if both images have the same dimensions.
In my test with different aspect ratios, images with different labels are created. The links with the old names will then no longer work

Works great

Very handy addition to the media library. I advise making a backup before using it, just in case. Up until now, it worked without a hitch.

NICE, useful and saves a lot of time!

Small, fast and almost invisible - means: it cooperates perfectly with WP and a lot of changing configurations, updates and plugins. I will keep it as long as possible.

Works great

I wish there is media rename function too. This plugin is able to do much better, it should be easy to rename media files for developers

Doesn't Work!

By girl_number_5 (trutherOne) on December 9, 2022

Used to be good on all sites (single install and multisites) now does not work at all on any WP install type. With newer versions of WP it somehow got left behind. You should find out what's changed in the WP core and adjust your code accordingly. Right now this plugin is completely useless! Deleting and looking elsewhere until fixed.

Media is not Replacing

By marikane on October 6, 2022

I would so love for this plugin to work! I think I'm doing everything right in the upload etc, and when it switches to the image edit page, the correct image is displayed - until I hit Update! Then it reverts to the old image! Got 50 of these to do, so will breathlessly await your reply!

Very handy, and really good response from developers

By clausfaber on October 3, 2022

Good plugin, very handy. EDIT: Initially, I had an error when replacing an image with a different name and filetype divi. I fixed the issue with re-placing the image. When trying to reproduce the error, I failed - whatever was wrong, was most likely something else than this plugin.

Just a brilliant plugin!!!

By DarkDjadai (Darkdjadai) on September 24, 2022

Thanks to the developers for such a convenient and useful plugin! Just a brilliant plugin!!! Replaced about 2000 images without problems and glitches

Very useful

By deflueck on September 20, 2022
