YAPB => WordPress Attachment Migration

You want to stop using YAPB, but your images don’t appear as attachments so you would have to reupload all of them again?

Don’t search no longer – even if i’m sorry to see you go, i’m also happy to help you to leave YAPB.

Just download the YAPB to WordPress Migration plugin:

After upload and activation, go under “tools/YAPB Migration” and press “start migration”.

updated 2015-09-14
tested on WordPress 4.3
ZIP-File, 55.8 KB

Older versions

If you’re using an older version of WordPress (please be adviced to update soon) you may download one of the following versions. Please mention that those version are deprecated.

for WordPress 2.3.2 discontinued
ZIP-File, 714 KB
for WordPress 2.1.x and 2.2.x discontinued
ZIP-File, 480 KB
for WordPress 2.0.x discontinued
ZIP-File, 314 KB


The installation consists of three parts: Upload, setting a directory permission (on unix/linux systems) and activation of the plugin.

Upload the files

  1. Unzip the content of the zip-file into an empty directory
  2. Upload the yapb-directory directly into the wp-content/plugins folder of your wp-installation

Set a directory permission
(only on YAPB version < 1.9.14)

Notice: Deprecated since YAPB 1.9.14 – YAPB tries to create a cache directory under wp-content/uploads. You don’t need this on windows systems (or you have to wrestle with the windows directory permissions).

  1. The used open source thumbnailing engine phpThumb needs one directory access for storing its cache files. Set the permission of the directory wp-content/plugins/yet-another-photoblog/cache/ to 777.

Activate the plugin

  1. Go to admin panel / plugins and activate it
  2. Enjoy!


Support YAPB

Do you like YAPB? Do you use it regulary to show your photos or images? Did YAPB save you time? Or you just want to give something back for the time spent to create, maintain and support YAPB? Just Donate a little ammount so i may buy a good book, DVD, etc. or just pay some server traffic. Bigger ammounts (if any) will be invested in my photo equipment of course ;-)

Thanks alot from Salzburg!

Set a backlink

Yes – This plugin was released under the GPL and you’re nearly free to do all you want to do.

But i’d be pleased very much to see some backlinks to this site.

This plugin needs a lot of my spare time – So it would be a great sign of respect if you use one of these buttons (or just place a normal href) on your site:

</p> <p>#buttons { margin-bottom:10px; } #buttons tr td { margin:0;padding:0 10px 10px 0; } #buttons tr td.border { padding-top:10px;border-top:1px solid silver; }

To set a backlink, just download the button of your desire (Or have a look into the included linkback/yapb-buttons.zip) and include a link something like that in your footer.php (Or wherever you want):

<a href=”http://johannes.jarolim.com/yapb” target=”_blank”><img src=”01a.gif” border=”0″ /></a>


Please be so kind to provide positive and/or negative feedback so i can improve this piece of code if necessary.

Since there is definitly some feedback and the pages grow and grow – I suggest you use the yapb-forum to ask questions, maybe help each other, etc.

    Dear Mr. Jarolim,
    I know this is a simple problem; but I am impatient to use your YAPB plug in. I need to know the correct [by me or others] directory name and path required by this error message:[Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Filename cannot be empty in /services10/webpages/c/a/carefreegreenery.com/public/wordpress/wordpress-content/plugins/yet-another-photoblog/lib/includes/YapbConstants.script.php on line 14]
    I tried hard to find the answer on my own but need a boost to complete.

    Thank you for your indulgence.

    Regards, Don Mitchell

    Hi Johannes,

    You have a serious spam problem in your forum it seems...

    Take care,

      Had to shut it down entirely. No way to secure it against those spammers.

        Is there a version of this plugin compatible with the current Wordpress release (3.1.4)? Also, does it allow for multiple photos to be attached to a single post? I can't tell from the screen shots.

        Thank you!

    How can I modify the silver 10 pixel border around the images? I found and tried the change in YAPB-options, but makes noe difference, the border is unchanged. Thank you.

      Hi Robin -

      Go onto the YAPB options page, select the "Automatic Image Insertion" tab and change the custom html inserted before and after the image.

        Thanks! That was the answer I was looking for. Very easy. Of course I tried the hard way first and missed the obvious!

    Does YAPB work on a multi-site installation? (I am the Network Admin) WordPress version 3.2.1

    The script appears to have no problem uploading (confirmed by FTPing and confirming file uploaded to proper numbered directory for site) but every page that references the image shows a broken image placeholder (dashboard side and site side). Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

        Hi Tom,

        I have the same problem. I installed WP 3.4.2 and am developing my multisite install locally. I can't get the YAPB to work. I get "Error: File does not exists!" all the time. I have changed file permissions on cache folder to 777 but to no avail.

        Hope you could help me!

    I've just installed the YAPB plugin and am having some issues using it. I'm assuming i'm just missing something basic but i cant find anything on the issue when i googled it.

    So i've installed the plug in, activated it, gone to add a new post and the YAPB upload box is there. I click browse and choose my photo and the box fills with the path but nothing else happens. When i then publish the post there isn't a photo in it. Am i missing out a step that loads the photo?

    I have almsot the same problem as Keran above.

    I've just installed the YAPB plugin and am having some issues using it. I'm assuming i'm just missing something basic but i cant find anything on the issue when i googled it.

    So i've installed the plug in, activated it, gone to add a new post and the YAPB upload box is there. I click browse and choose my photo and the box fills with the path but nothing else happens.

    When I publish the post, there is a FULL-SIZE photo (2000 px wide) and I can't find any controls on how to make it the size I need.

    I thought the YAPB probably has a way to simply set-up the size pf pistures in posts - but I can't find it!

    Hi Johannes,

    I am trying to use YAPB Migration (thanks for providing!) but it is just stalled at 0/245 migrated with the 'working' symbol spinning. I have re-installed the plugin and am using the latest version of Wordpress and YAPB.

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    I'm getting following warning when trying to activate YAP plugin:
    - Pluging can't be activated because it caused a serious error.
    Warning: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File (/home/www/xy.cz/subdomains/wp/wp-content) is not within the allowed path(s): (/data/www/www_xy_cz/wp/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1420.
    Then similar warning for further files...

    Seems like a problem with a folder structure on the server. Could I somewhere correct the code to refer to the proper destination?

    Hi, we've just upgraded to version 1.10.14, and for some reason, our YAPB button has gone missing and we can't activate the plugin - message returns:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Warning: require_once(/var/www/html/marketingcharts.com/wordpress/wp-admin): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/marketingcharts.com/wp-content/plugins/yet-another-photoblog/lib/includes/YapbConstants.script.php on line 14

    Any suggestions? We had some other issues (now resolved) with plugins, so I don't know if something got turned off, or what we need to do to fix.
