Le plugin joue entièrement son rôle. Il est très facile de renommer ses fichiers. Il ne faut pas oublier que c’est automatique, et donc que ça se fait pour tous les fichiers… Si on veut éviter de renommer un fichier en particulier, il faut penser à désactiver le renommage avant, mais ça se fait en un clic. Merci !
