Rename files during upload within Wordpress

Plugin: wp-filename-sanitizer



Security and sanity in file names while uploading.

This is how the plugin works: when a file is selected for uploading, this plugin changes the filename according to the following two rules:

  • convert spaces and strange characters into dashes (-)
  • utf8 convert to ascii


  1. Clone the repository folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
