This plugin is meant for admins/people that have basic understanding of how WordPress works.

This is very useful after you import posts/images from another CMS via direct SQL or when you somehow messed up your posts/images.

The Plugin will process your posts one-by-one and repair some basic things when it finds a problem:

General repair

  • Create a valid post_name for all posts

Image repair

  • Fix image-metadata
  • Creates missing image-thumbnails

(The plugin uses core WordPress methods to fix images. So the result is exactly same, as if you re-uploaded the images via WordPress)

Custom repair

Simply create an action handler to manually check each single post-item in the database and repair it if required!

add_action( 'fix-the-post', 'your_handler' );
function your_handler( $the_post ) {
    $the_post->title = 'new title';
    wp_update_post( $post );
    echo 'Title updated!'; // You will see this in the repair-log on screen.
