Bulk Media Register


Bulk register files on the server to the Media Library.

Register to media library

  • Maintain folder structure.
  • This create a thumbnail of the image file.
  • This create a metadata(Images, Videos, Audios).
  • Change the date/time.

Sibling plugin


  • If you want to use a multi-byte file name, use UTF-8. The file name is used as the title during registration, but is sanitized and changed to a different file name.

How it works


  • Search for Bulk Register
  • Bulk Register
  • Select Register
  • Register to Media Library
  • Settings


  1. Upload bulk-media-register directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Idea of the plugin is great. I don’t know how to register a picture. Such program could be helpfull. I have instalation on Debian 12 running PHP8.2 MySQL 8.0.27 and WP 6.5.3. On my separate drive(/home/username/media) there are about 650 pictures with most of them are registered. If I tried to registered them all process stopped, but nothing else happened. No one picture has been additionally registered. In selection section all pictures are invisible even if registered and shown in media library. Also it is impossible to register even one.

After a backup through ftp all db entries of the media were gone. This plugin fixed just right that! Do have a tip to improve: it would be nice to get the date of the image created and set than one because now all media files are from the date of today 😉 but hey, if that is the worst thing

Hi , As raised out by commentor „synthezoid“ , I faced the same problem that the Plugin can only successfully register some of the files selected. Having investigating different parameters (e.g. File Extension Type / Upload Folder / FTP File Permission) , and I found out that one of the reasons (i don’t know whether it has more than 1 reason or not) is that if the there is any “ “ (i.e. the „space“) or „-“ inside the File Name , the File will be failed to register in wordpress. I hope the author can fix the bug and it will be a good plugin again. Before author fix the bug, i suggest you can avoid using “ “ (spacde) and „-“ inside the file name to avoid the bug.

…because it does not „bulk“ register media, it bulk registers „some“ of your media. Some it just leaves out. Doesn’t tell you what it’s leaving out, either, you have to hunt for it. All in all any time you save bulk uploading will be lost trying to find & reupload the things it didn’t upload.MODERATOR: THIS IS NOT A SUPPORT REQUEST. I AM NOT LOOKING FOR SUPPORT WITH THIS PLUGIN. I AM NOT TRYING TO REPORT AN ISSUE TO THE DEVELOPER OR GET HELP FROM THEM. I AM REVIEWING MY EXPERIENCE OF IT FOR BENEFIT OF FUTURE PROSPECTIVE USERS.

I’m not giving a 1 star out of frustration or annoyance, but to get the developer’s attention. In my case I uploaded 377 images using FTP. They are all in webp format. The extension is recognized by the plugin. After „Select & Register“ the images are registered. However, when I go to the library, all I see are empty frames with the file name of the images, plus an extra string that is probably added by the registration process. If I want to use the plugin „Regenerate Thumbnails“ to create images so I can see them in the library, it won’t work. The string appended to the file name prevents the plugin from finding the original file on the server. I hope that with this information the developer can improve his plugin. I`m happy to change the amount of stars when this issue is solved. Thank you for your contribution.
