WordPress Uploaded Files Cleaner
[resolved] Files used in WP 'Galleries' get deleted (8 posts)

    When using this plugin, pictures that are presented on my blog via the use of a 'Gallery' are classified as 'unused files' by this plugin. Is there a way to circumvent this?

    What do you by 'Gallery' ? A slider ?

    In WP3.2+ there is the option of uploading media files, attaching them to a post, and instead of inserting each media file individually, you can 'insert gallery' which displays a thumbnail of every image attached to the post.

    Thanks, haven't tried it just yet but will try it soon when I can find some time :-) You haven't tested it yourself?

    Hi Chris,

    for me it's still not working a 100%, with the gallery. An option in the gallery shortcode defines, which image version is being displayed:
    ---
    size
    specify the image size to use for the thumbnail display. Valid values include "thumbnail", "medium", "large", "full" and any other additional image size that was registered with add_image_size(). The default value is "thumbnail". The size of the images for "thumbnail", "medium" and "large" can be configured in WordPress admin panel under Settings > Media. For example, to display a gallery of medium sized images: [gallery size="medium"]
    ---

    So, for your plugin to know, if for example a thumbnail image is used, it would have to check first, if that image is displayed in a gallery, and to what value the size-parameter is set.

    Correct me, if I'm mistaken!

    Best regards,
    Raffi

    Hello everybody, I'm experiencing the same issue with galleries: the plugin detects gallery images as unused. Hope to see an update as that is the major downfall I found in this plugin :)
