WordPress Remove Post Attachment


Adds a “detach from post” link on attachments so you can remove it from the post without deleting the file.

WordPress doesn’t give a simple way to add links in the media lightbox, so this plugin does its thing in a pretty hacky way. If it stops working or if you see any issue, please create an issue precising the WordPress version you’re using.


Simply upload the plugin (as a zip) from the extension page.
