Export Media URLs

Description

This plugin allows you to extract all URLs of your media, along with title, date, and type. It supports writing output in CSV file, or you can view URLs within the dashboard. It can be very useful during migration, seo analysis, and security audit. You can export Media’s:

  • ID
  • Title
  • URL
  • Date Uploaded
  • And its Type

The data can be filtered by Author, before extraction.

When we need this plugin?

  • To check Media URLs of your website
  • During migration
  • During security audit
  • To remove demo images, imported by theme

You’ll be surprised to know that, there exist some media, which you never know off or maybe it is imported by theme demo. But don’t worry, you’ll be able to find those URLs with the help of this small utility and perform the cleanup. 🙂

FAQ

About Plugin Support?

Post your question on support forum and we will try to answer your question as quick as possible.

Why did you make this plugin?

We couldn’t find a plugin that would export media URLs, along with additional data such as name, date and type. So, we make this utility, and it works just like that.

Why the file name is randomly generated?

Exporting the file with static name can be easily found by malicious attacker, and may result in sensitive information leakage. So we decided to generate random name, which are harder to guess.

Does Export All URLs make changes to the database?

No. It has no settings / configurations to store so it does not touch the database.

Which PHP version do I need?

This plugin has been tested and works with PHP versions 5.4 and greater. WordPress itself recommends using PHP version 7.3 or greater. If you’re using a PHP version lower than 5.4 please upgrade your PHP version or contact your Server administrator.

Are there any server requirements?

Yes. The plugin requires a PHP version 5.4 or higher and WordPress version 3.1.0 or higher.

Hi Author, First Thank you. I looked for this months ago, in order to export links of newly added image links so I can add them to an CSV for batch file upload using those images Thumbnails. Now I wish you could add the possiblity urls for a specific period. For instance exporting media urls of previous week, or prev. month. Because in my case I'm only interested getting the link of newly added media. Not thousands of urls, thumbs sizes etc. Thanks a lot for this Cheers

I needed a way to map new images to WooCommerce products and this plugin made it much easier to do. I'm glad I found it. Thank you for building it!
