Support » Plugin: Add From Server » Adds ALL registered thumbnails as new attachment

  • When you upload an image to the media library, wordpress (and possibly your theme and plugins too) create several thumbnails. All those thumbnails do not appear on the media library only the full size image is shown.

    This plugin does not consider those as thumbnails but as new images and it adds all the versions of the same image to the media library.
    This is WRONG!

    DO NOT USE THIS PLUGIN.

    If you’re using this plugin, and importing the thumbnails, you’re doing it wrong.

    The plugin is the same as you uploading media, upload the original, let WordPress create the thumbnails.

    Hi all …

    what Dough I think is trying to achieve is to regenerate the WordPress media library in the database based upon an already present WordPress wp-content/uploads/* structure he might have cloned from one site in his network or something similar.

    I’d think that this would be a rather common use case and that the CMS would support this natively – rescaning an already present media file structure back to the database hence having the filesystem being the master and not the database.

    I was looking for a solution the same as Doug was looking for. I manually uploaded a directory of images from another wordpress install to the uploads directory and was unable to see them in the media library. The solution was to use the plugin https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/media-library-plus/ to rescan the newly uploaded directory using the Sync function, this solved the problem for me.
