Great! Skvělé!

Konečně jsem našel plug-in, který zabrání mršit web klientům, kteří pořád nahrávají fotky s diakritikou. WordPress si s nimi poradí, ale při migraci na jiný hosting všechny soubory s českým názvem, zmizí…
Moc děkuji autorovi
Finally, I found a plug-in that prevents the Web site’s clients from still recording accented names of photos. WordPress will handle them, but when migrating to another hosting, all files with a Czech name will disappear …
Thank you very much to the author

Plugin Must Have!

To jedna z podstawowych wtyczek które moim zdaniem powinno się posiadać. Dzięki niej nie pojawiają się problemy dotyczące polskich znaków w nazwach plików. Wystarczy instalacja i aktywacja. To jeden z moich ulubionych pluginów 🙂


Absolutely great!!
No more problems with missing images after moving a website 🙂
