Is there a plugin or a "hack" that can help me do this? I have spent hours try to figure this out so I would greatly appreciate nay help. I have WP 3.1 running php5 Thanks!

eg.: postitle_image-ID.jpg


Hook into the filter 'sanitize_file_name'. See my plugin Germanix URL for a working example.

A plugin doing this is Rename Media.

  • i search for a plugin, that renames the files during upload. – mate64 Apr 25 '11 at 17:43
  • @msec I made an update to my answer and recommended a plugin. – fuxia Apr 25 '11 at 17:52

There is also Media File Renamer, and it does a bit more than Rename Media.
