The Asset Mover plugin for Movable Type and Melody allows you to move a
file-based asset to a different location. For example, you may want to move
To install this plugin follow the instructions found here:
The Asset Mover can be used at the blog level; visit Manage > Assets to use it. Select the assets you want to move and choose "Move Asset(s)" from the "More actions..." selector then click "Go."
A small window will appear with a text field, giving you a chance to specify the location to move the selected assets to. Specify a path relative to the Blog Site Root. Valid options include:
folder: move the selected assets to a single folder beneath the Blog Site Root.
folder/hierarchy/for/assets: move the selected assets to a new location several folders deep, again relative to the Blog Site Root.
/: move the selected assets to the Blog Site Root.
Folders will be created as necessary to relocate the selected assets.
Non-file and missing assets will be ignored.
Moving an asset to a different location will cause any references to the old location to break!
- If you're publishing the moved asset with the
<mt:AssetURL>tag, for example, the fix for this is easy: simply republish.
- If you've inserted the moved asset into an entry (or otherwise "hard-coded") the URL, the only solution is to search for the old URL and update it accordingly.
