[resolved] Un-attach post image attachments (8 posts)

    I would like to suggest a feature that should be in the core already from the first version and that is to be able to un-attach images attached to a post. Because currently in order somehow edit a gallery, you need to remove the images directly from media library, which just feels kinda dirty and not efficient.

    For example, this would be really helpful when creating a gallery system with custom post type.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, I will try that one out, but this should be built in functionality. Is this the right forum to suggest a functionality or should I post somewhere else?

  3. It's the right place, but it's not going to be included. If you attach the same image to a second post, it becomes only attached to that post.

    Yeah but I would like to be able to modify the attachments in a post. Lets say I want to remove 1 image from the gallery, but I dont want to delete it completely, because I might use it for something else later. Adding new images usually works, when you just add media and close the window.

    This is a most disappointing state of affairs. The ability to track images to posts/pages is not a whimsical thing; it is a basic, necessary feature of a Media Library. And there are any number of ways that this could be done.

    Exactly, I dont understand how nobody from the dev team, or anyone at all thought about that.
