Thumbnail Cleaner

Cleans up your WordPress installation by removing and regenerating thumbnails.

Thumbnails Cleaner helps you keeping your WordPress installation tidy by removing and regenerating thumbnails.

All functions can be controlled from the plugins' main page found under "Tools". You can:

  • Create backups of your uploads directory so that you won't lose any files.
  • Analyze your uploads directory, giving you an overview how many original files and thumbnails there are.
  • Clean thumbnails which will delete all of them while keeping the original files.
  • Restore thumbnails to start out with a clean uploads directory. This function requires the plugin Regenerate Thumbnails.
  • Restore backups in case you have lost a file that was not supposed to be deleted.

Please see the official website for a full documentation.

If you have any other ideas for features, please don't hesitate to submit them by sending me an e-mail and I'll try my best to implement it in the next version. Your WP.org username will be added to the plugin's contributor list, of course (if you provide one).

Feel free to make Thumbnail Cleaner easier to use for non-English speaking users by help translating the plugin on Transifex.
