FAQ

Why a crawler ?

Because the feature to check if a media url is used in a post content take a very long time. So caching those medias is the best way to keep the interface fast and furious.

Reviews

Scans database too long and finds nothing

Looks like a well designed plugin. However, it scanned my database for almost an hour and found 0 media files.

All I wanted was to delete thumbnails that were leftovers from other plugins from my disk storage, and this plugin failed to do it.

It is possible that this plugin only removes media that it finds in database as orphans, but it takes too long to scan, and disappointment is natural when you realize that it finds nothing to be deleted in the first place.

If plugin gets updated, will revisit my rating.
Sorry
