As some of you may know there is an issue with uploading photos to ebay now that they have changed their photo filename policy so that spaces are not allowed in the filename (or folder name for that matter too). Does any one know of a (preferably free) module that will update all image filenames in OC to include a - or _ instead of a space to eliminate this problem? My OC version is 2.0.3.2 so an extension or vqmod for this would be very useful as I have quite a few that need renaming.

Quite an old OC version. Your request may have been added afterwards on more recent OC versions.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

True, it may be worth upgrading. ;)
According to Openbay support the problem lies with eBay's update so I'd imagine it will affect all Openbay users? I just wondered if anyone else had experienced this problem?

This has also been reported on Github Opencart recently regarding the Openbay updates. Not an easy API to adapt with. ;)

Thanks for the tip Straightlight, I might keep an eye on GitHub to see if a patch gets released - for now I am having to take all of the spaces out of the file names manually, reassign the image in OpenCart to the new file name and then I can list with OpenBay. Takes about 10-15 mins each. I had hoped to add a few hundred listings to eBay but I won't be able to do that now as it will just take too long. That's why I was hoping for a module to convert them. It looks like some people have done this before for some older versions of OC, but I couldn't find any for my version anywhere in the Marketplace.

With the prior versions of the extensions, it can still be accomplished as long as the maintenance are still maintained on those extensions.

Unfortunately, many are not.

Any URL extensions you could provide?
