SEO File Renamer
This is a super simple plugin for uploaded file name sanitization.
Essentially, it’s to make your uploaded filenames easier for search engines to read, hence better for SEO, nicer to look at in the folder (who cares?), and should also help avoid any issues with naming conventions. You might be thinking that WordPress does a good enough job at renaming, but it still allows underscores and other symbols and characters that maybe don’t belong in a filename.
e.g. This: Æ, %20 æ Ï, Ö, Ü, Ÿ-boyz_%20__=++&, ©, §)+Ţ ţ++‰+ath-club-ÆØÅæøå–.pdf Becomes: AE-20-ae-I-O-U-Y-boyz-20-T-tath-club-AEOAaeoa.pdf This: —-___——]- hair space U+200A.jpg becomes: hair-space-U200A.jpg
The Original idea for this was done by Vaughn Royko and so we thought we would turn this into a simple plugin with a few options for those who are worried about messing with their functions file, and or can only install plugins and cant edit the Functions file.
