#43227 new enhancement

Media uploaded to post should remove underscores and hyphens from text inserted into title attribute

When adding a new image into a post my file name will typically be called something like:


Once this image is uploaded wp will automatically set the title and will default to the name of the image "descriptive-name-of-image" if no title meta data is available in the image.

I think a better default action would be to replace the hyphens/underscores with spaces and possibly capitalising the first letter making the title "Descriptive name of image".

Hi @mrmadhat, thanks for the suggestion. I'm surprised nobody has suggested this already, but I don't see a previous ticket.
