Cleanup Images

Cleanup your Media Library and disk storage by finding and deleting unused images in the Media Library.

Does this plug find all references to the image?

Since any plugin and any development of a WordPress site can store image references in any number of ways, this plugin cannot predict them all. This plugin only searches standard WordPress pages and posts, as well as entries in the WordPress options table and standard usage of Pods 2.1+. It does not currenltly find any other sort of reference or support the Pods tables option.

What about Pods being used with their own tables?

No, this plugin does not currently search Pods created tables for images. Only Pods 2.1 used in the meta-data mode is supported.

Can I undelete the images I delete with this plugin?

No, there is no support to undelete the image. It is permanently removed from the database and the site upload directory. Please make sure you always have a backup of your database and your site directory before using this or any other plugin or making any changes on your site. Your data is valuable.

Why are there child images for each of my uploaded images?

By default, WordPress generates several sizes of images for each upload (up to three different sizes). If you don't make use of this default functionality, you can turn it off on the Settings => Media page by setting each width and height to 0. You'll have less to clean up in the future.

Why do I get a session error?

Often, on sites hosted on shared servers, the PHP's settings haven't been completely configured. In php.ini of your site, you need to ensure that a valid directory is specified for the session data, and that this directory is writable by the web server/PHP. See your hosting ISP for more information.
