Hi everybody,


I thought this was worth sharing:


I’ve just finished uploading 3 batches (3100+ images (*)) using the GW-toolset. I was looking at ways to do some automatic post-upload cleaning of metadata in all the 3100+ files (eg. getting rid of unwanted semicolons that the GW-tool adds in the mapping process).


I was about to file a bot request, but came across the VisualFileChange tool, very helpful for mass Find-Replace operations. It is a tool that can be used for mass-changes of one author's uploaded files, or files in a category. It's a web-tool and can be launched directly.


Might be something to add to the GW-toolset end user manual https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:GWToolset ?
