Hello, I put this comment in this thread with the last question, I have a magazine with 30,000 articles and 900,000 images in the same folder. Can I move those 900,000 images by folders at once? I have read in some of your comments that I would also need the “Media File Renamer” plugin, but I don’t quite understand what the process to follow would be to solve this problem. First I migrate the images to the folders and then rename them? or something like that? Will the seo issue be affected? Thank you so much for your help. a greeting

Hi molinapirata,

I must admit that the process of starting with the Real Physical Media is quite complex at the moment. We will release a new version next week, where you will get instructions directly in the plugin how to activate all parts of the plugins. I hope you have a few days time, because with the new version it will be much easier – and even easier than some explanations I could give you now.

Thanks for your patience!

Best,

Jan

Can you help me Please.

I can not activate the plugin and can find the bug:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class ‘DevOwl\RealPhysicalMedia\Core’ not found in /home/www/wp/wp-content/plugins/real-physical-media/inc/base/others/start.php:38 Stack trace: #0 /home/www/wp/wp-content/plugins/real-physical-media/index.php(44): require_once() #1 /home/www/wp/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php(2255): include(’/home/www/wp/wp…’) #2 /home/www/wp/wp-admin/plugins.php(177): plugin_sandbox_scrape(‘real-physical-m…’) #3 {main} thrown in /home/www/wp/wp-content/plugins/real-physical-media/inc/base/others/start.php on line 38

Hi Uwe! Danke für Deine Nachricht. Welche Version von Real Media Library und Real Physical Media verwendest Du denn?

I need a refund for all Devowl products I’ve purchased. I do not use them.

Hi brandondithberry,

thanks for your request. I am sorry to tell you that it is not a valid reason for a refund if you simply no longer need our products.

If you have a technical problem with our products, please open a support ticket at devowl.io/support and we will try to find a solution together with you. In the rare case that we cannot find a solution, we are willing to provide a refund.

Best,

Jan

Your license agreement does not mention refund policy at all. I have not found anything on your site or in your license that refers to refunds. Simply saying that you can’t provide a refund without it being in the license agreement is grounds for legal action. I spent a lot of money on 4 licenses from you and I expected that the way it worked would be that the plugin models my existing media folder automatically like Real Media Library Folders Pro. This means that your plugin could very well do the same thing but it does not. That’s a pretty big technical issue for me and that’s why I’m not able to use this. Please issue a refund for all 4 licenses.

I’m sorry there seems to have been a communication problem.

Our products are sold on codecanyon.net, where you also purchased all licenses. With the purchase you have explicitly agreed to the following documents (opt-in checkbox, which you have ticked):

Envato Market Terms: https://codecanyon.net/legal/market Privacy Policy: https://envato.com/privacy/

The “Envato Market Terms” contain contractual agreements on refunds from point 26 onwards. Reference was also made to the Envato Market Refund Rules (https://codecanyon.net/page/customer_refund_policy). Please read them again carefully.

If you have technical problems with the products – that’s how it sounds to me – please open a support ticket at devowl.io/support, and we will be happy to find a solution for the problem together with you.

Hi, Your KB states that I ‘can easily migrate’ from ‘Media Library Folders’, but with no instructions. https://help.devowl.io/kb/real-media-library/migrate-import-from-other-plugins

Media Library Folders does not use taxonomy, but physical folder structure and scans the folders to populate as well. So there is no taxonomy list to import to Real Physical Media.

Before I turn off Media Library Folders, I need Real Physical Media to mimic the existing folder structure FIRST. Testing your plugin and yours want to force a new flat structure and move all my files to root first and is not ‘seeing’ the existing physical structure at all.

Where are the specific instructions to make Real Physical Media scan the existing folder structure and load that into Real Media Library virtual list?

I can’t add this to existing sites that have thousands of images and big existing ‘actual’ folders if your plugin does not ‘see’ actual folders. Thanks

Hi there! Thanks for your message. Sorry for the troubles. I am happy to help you and will implement an importer for “Media Library Folders”: Can you please contact us via https//devowl.io/support so we can send you a prerelease version?

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Another question; How do we move the existing thumbnails (and other sizes) WITH the original, to a new folder. When I move them now the other WP autogenerated image sizes stay behind in the old location??

Hi there! Thanks for your message. Real Physical Media uses Media File Renamer in the rename process and Media File Renamer is also responsible for thumbnail movements. Can you please check, if you are using the filename feature of Media File Renamer the issue persists?

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Hi, pre-sale question, does your plugin:

1) Have possibility to set a new custom “physical’ path as ”/Upload/Hotels/” for all files at once for a batch media files uploading?

If yes, then how does it work? a) Nevertheless WP upload all files to a default folder like “Upload/Year/Month/” and your plugin then one-by-one but automatically move all files to a chosen destination custom folder? b) or your plugin automatically upload each new file to a custom folder directly-instantly?

2) After all media was upload, does your plugin gives possibility at media gallery to select many media files and change their “physical’ path for example form ”/Upload/Hotels/” to ”/Upload/Motels/”?

So not to waste time with each file one-by-one path set on a batch upload and not to waste time with each file one-by-one path change on a batch moving,

Hi again! You do not need to enter a new folder-path. You simply need create a new folder within your Real Media Library folder tree, select your files (bulk select in grid mode, or checkboxes in list mode), and drag&drop it to the given folder. Real Physical Media can detect this changes and automatically synchronizes the physicla folder path. Please ask me, should anything still be unclear.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Hi there! Yeah, Real Media Library and Real Physical Media works together with all that plugins. FYI you can checkout our other plugin which replaces “Regenerate Thumbnails Advanced”: https://codecanyon.net/item/wordpress-real-thumbnail-generator-bulk-regenerate-upload-folder/18937507 Best regards, Matthew :-)

my vaultpress says there is malicious code in your plugin please advise.

Hi there! Thanks for your message. You can ignore this as this is a false notification. Would you like to notify VaultPress developers so they can exactly tell you why this is notified? This is a common module (https://github.com/symfony/polyfill-intl-normalizer) which is used by a lot of people and there is no malicious code in it.

Hi, i have bought and installed both Real Media Library and Real Physical media on my wordpress.

I have uploaded images to folder ‘A’, and i want to move them to folder ‘B’. In the Media window, i have created folder ‘B’ and moved images there. But physically on my server, it is not moved. How do i make the images move physically automatically as well? Thank you.

Hi geokir,

you have read the notes after activating the plugin that you have to activate automatic change detection? If not you must activate it in the WP Admin Bar in your backend next to the name of your website in Real Physical Media modal.

If you have further question, please open a support ticket at devowl.io/support.

Best,

Jan

Hi, sorry, i could not find the place to active change detection. Could you please kindly guide me through? I would appreciate.

Hi again!

Thanks for your reply. Please login to your WordPress and navigate to your admin dashboard. On the top admin bar you will find an “arrow” icon with a number right to it. Please hover with your mouse and a popover will be opened. There you will find a link “Activate automatic change detection”.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Hello,

How can I keep the filename uppercase when upload?

Before installed the plugin the filename can keep the case sensitive.

For example: Abc.jpg will rename to abc.jpg when activated the plugin.

Can you help me to resolve the problem? Thanks.

BR, James

Hi James,

it is a feature of Real Physical Media to make your file path not case-sensitive (and to remove special charters), as this can cause some problems depending on your server configuration and the client used by your website visitor.

If you want to have case-sensitive filenames and paths anyways, please go to Settings > Media > Real Media Library > Real Physical Media > Lowercase in your WordPress backend and disable this feature there.

Best,

Jan

Hey, wir nutzen die Media-Library seit kurzem und es funktioniert auch soweit gut. Wir verwenden Multi-Sites und nun stehe ich vor einem kleinen Problem.

Bei der ersten Seite, welche die globale Hauptseite darstellt, wird die Ordnerstruktur via Backend wunderbar direkt im Upload-Ordner erstellt.

Bei den weiteren Seiten erstellt ja Wordpress automatisch im Upload-Ordner weitere Unterordner, die nummerisch abgelegt werden. Ich möchte aber hier auf die Dateien des Hauptordners “uploads” zugreifen können, und nicht nur im Unterordner “uploads > 02”. Im Backend sehe ich nämlich diese eigens angelegten Ordner nicht, da ich mich direkt im Unterordner befinde. Ist dies irgendwie zu ändern?

Vielen Dank vorab.

Liebe Grüße, Martina

Hi Martina! Danke für Deine Nachricht! Soweit ich das richtig verstanden habe, möchtest Du Dateien zwischen Deinen Sites “sharen”, ist das richtig? Dies ist aktuell nicht möglich und auch nicht Sinn und Zweck einer Multisite-Installation, da hier jede Seite in sich geschlossen ist. Du solltest solche Sharings so gut wie möglich meiden, um auch später keine Probleme bei z. B. Website-Migration zu haben.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

I seem to have discovered a pretty serious bug: When I rename a directory “PDF files” to “PDF”, a second directory is suddenly created on the server: “unnamed-file.pdf”. It seems to happen only with the word “PDF”.

Oh: Seems to be a bug within WordPress …

Hi Oliver! Ja, das ist leider ein WordPress Core Bug, welcher nur durch eventuell einen Workaround behoben werden kann. Wir haben dazu schon ein Ticket offen, lediglich noch nicht implementiert. Wir lassen Dich wissen, sobald das Problem behoben ist!

Hello. I am using the free version of Real Media Folder. It seems the two ways sync does not work, i mean, i create a folder in library and populate it with pics and i find it in my ftp. But when i do the same in the ftp the folder and pics do not show up in library. I understand i need th Physical Media plugin for this, correct? And here i read that in order to use Physical Media i need both Real Media and Real Renamer… so i do not really understand why you only sell them separately and not as a bundle. Last question: the license is for one site only? if yes then i’ll be very sorry, the plugins look great but i cannot afford to pay a yearly license for each site. Thank you.

Hi kapikuawebdesign,

Real Media Library and Real Physical Media are not synchronized with the wp-content/uploads/ folder using two-way synchronization. This is because WordPres must register and progress all images, and due to the limitations of PHP, the language in which WordPres is written, this is a process that would not work properly. Therefore, Real Physical Media offers just a one-way sync.

If you want to manually add files uploaded via FTP, we can recommend the free plugin “Add to Server” (https://wordpress.org/plugins/add-from-server/).

You are absolutely right with your question why we do not sell the plugins as a bundle. The answer is simple: Envato Market (codecanyon.net) does not have the technical ability to sell bundles. As soon as such a feature is available, we will sell bundles, but we don’t expect it before the end of the year.

Each license is for one site, but it is a one-time fee. So there are no annual recruitment costs. This means that our plugins should be much cheaper overall than you expect.

I hope to see you soon as one of our customers :)

Best,

Jan

Hey is it possible to auto generate folders based on which page/product the images are displayed?

Hi there! Thanks for your message. Unfortunately this functionality is not available at the moment. Learn more about it here: https://devowl.io/knowledge-base/how-can-i-trigger-that-a-file-gets-physicall-moved/

Prospective buyer: I would like to know why I need the Media File Renamer plugin to make Real Physical Media plugin to work? Does it mean that if I rename a folder or file in Real Media Library, it will not work without the Renamer plugin installed? That seems unfair if a basic functionality depends on another paid plugin.

The free version of Media File Renamer contains all the features required by Real Physical Media. So don’t worry, you don’t have to buy your plugin. Media File Renamer PRO offers you even more PRO features in the future. You can check them out at https://meowapps.com/plugin/media-file-renamer/.

All seven points you mentioned are possible with Real Physical Media (and the free version of Media File Renamer). We have explained some of your questions in detail in the “Questions from happy customers” in the product description (https://codecanyon.net/item/wordpress-real-physical-media-physical-media-library-folders-seo-rewrites/23104206). Please check them and if there are any open questions, please let me know.

Regarding your criticism of the support of Media File Renamer, please be sure that we take this into account. If Media File Renamer would end its support, we would find another solution for our customers. For now, we have had a business relationship with Jordy from Media File Renamer for several years, and many customers are happy that the two plugins are integrated into each other, because most of them use Media File Renamer anyway if they are interested in Real Physical Media.

Thanks for the explanation. I’ve made the purchase!

Hi again!

If you have any further questions feel free to ask!

moved the file datei.jpg

the old link to the file now creates a wordpress 404 (The page you are looking for is no longer there, or has never existed) not a 302 or 301 Image not accessible. As a result, no image is displayed in the Test Post. 302 or301 does not work. Also the image link in the post is not changed.

Thanks

How do you provide content from wp-content/uploads/ via your NGINX configuration? Normally it would be routed through your index.php and the redirections you create can be applied. In some NGINX configurations you deliver the static files directly through NGINX and thus bypass the redirections. If this is the case, you have to reconfigure the routing of wp-content/uploads/ in your NGINX configuration to the default behavior of a WordPress installation.

Best regards,

Jan

Hello, I installed the Real Media Library free plugin and purchased and installed Real Physical Media. I’d like some clarifications on Real Physical Media I upgraded folders and files from an ftp client. If I open the wordpress gallery I can’t find any files. Folders created directly from the Real Media Library are also created in the file system. Can you better explain how the plugin works? I would like to upload files and folders with an ftp client and find them in the wordpress gallery. it’s possible?

Thanks for the attention

Hallo,

wo finde ich bei dem Plugin die SEO-Redirects? Diese werden korrekt angelegt, doch wir möchten dies nicht. Kann man die automatische Erstellung der Redirects ausstellen? Wo finden wir diese Ansicht: https://imgur.com/pMdEMoR?

Vielen Dank vorab.

Hallo Martina,

danke für deine Anfrage. In folgendem Screenshot sieht du, wie du zu den SEO Redirects kommst. Du musst dazu über Real Physical Media Icon in der Admin Bar hovern und anschließen auf dem “SEO Redirects” Link klicken. Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/9fFp3oh.png

Eine Option die Redirects auszuschalten gibt es aktuell nicht, da du so riskierst, dass nach dem erfolgreichen Verschieben von Dateien im Dateisystem bestehende Links nicht mehr funktionieren. Warum möchtest du diese Funktion ausschalten?

Viele Grüße

Jan
