Unzip Existing Attachments

Requirements

Overview

The ZIP Addon works with the Bulk & Quick Edit Addon to provide options within the Media Library to unzip existing ZIP files that have already been uploaded to the Media Library.

This is useful if:

  • You are installing the ZIP Addon on an existing WordPress web site, where existing ZIP files already exist in the Media Library,
  • You wish to manually unzip an existing ZIP file in the Media Library.

To bulk unzip existing ZIP files, click on Media in the WordPress Administration menu.
