[resolved] How to Delete WordPress Cache from the Web? (5 posts)

    Hello,
    Lately I've been trying to remove pictures I've taken from the Web, but in this case, it seems pretty impossible for the webmaster to do anything about it. There are two pictures I want removed; the URLs are mentioned below.
    I contacted the webmaster who initially uploaded the pictures, but she could only delete the source, the actual articles containing the pictures, but that didn't remove it from Google. It seems like a plug-in, WP-o-Matic, has cached the pictures.
    Can you help us to find a way to remove these pictures?
    Thanks

    P.S. I have no clue what I'm doing, so please be patient.

    And to be clear: I don't own the site, but I'm in contact with the webmaster who's willing to do whatever it takes to take those pictures down.

    WordPress.org only distributes the software to create sites, and has no connection at all to the sites or their owners/webmasters. This is a case where the webmaster of that site has to remove the images themselves. No one here can do anything about it as we don't have any access to anything at all to do with that site.

    The good part is you know where the files are, so any webmaster that's even semi-competent will be able to delete them easily.

    Alright, I see what you're saying, but as stated before, I have no clue what I'm doing. My thread here was just a desperate attempt in finding someone able to tell me how to possibly remove the pictures, and because the URLs had something 'WP' in them, I ended up here. Obviously, it's not a WordPress issue. Thanks for your help, though!

    Dear moderator,
    Can you please delete this thread? Since it's not even discussing WordPress, you can't possibly see any value of having it here, and I would really like it removed. Now, because I linked to my pictures in this very thread, the pictures have reappeared on the surface of the Web. You see, the webmaster eventually removed the pictures from her site, so the pictures now appearing are hosted by this WordPress support community. Oh, sweet irony...

    I know you have a history of being cranky about deleting posts, but this has nothing to do with WordPress and won't help anyone. Moreover, the post itself has ultimately become the source of the problem. Show some care, will y'all?

    Thank you for any help you can provide in this situation.

  5. I removed your URLs, but I'm leaving the post up. While it's NOT a WP question, it's good to have for people, like you, who make this mistake :) Maybe they'll find your thread, realize it applies to them, and learn.

    Sorry about the person being a jerk with your images :(
