    Hi: I need to replace 500 media item images (and their thumbnails) without affecting the URL links for the existing images. That is, I want to replace a jpg file without affecting all of the galleries that link to that media item – similar to the plugin Enable Media Replace but working in bulk. Might this be a useful feature you could add to this plugin?

    Thanks.

    If the file name is the same, you can overwrite it with FTP without using a plugin.
    Then regenerate the thumbnails.
    It’s a good idea to use some plugin to regenerate thumbnails.

    Thank you for the prompt reply. The problem with using a plugin to regenerate thumbnails (like Regenerate Thumbnails) is they don’t seem to deal well with the bulk element. I don’t want to regenerate all (too many), I just want to do the 500 (using your other plugin to limit the number of thumbnails) but without having to select them all separately (e.g. by identifying them via the Media Library and ticking boxes).

    I use your disable thumbnails plugin but googling hadn’t uncovered your bulk generate thumbnails plugin. I’ll give it a try. Once again, thank you.

    Bulk Generate Thumbnails plugin worked fine.
