Support » Fixing WordPress » Attached files listed as "unattached"?

  • I need help understanding what “attached” means. I thought it meant that a media file (say an image) was being used in a post or page.

    However, I have a post, that clearly has a file “attached” to it – but when I look in my media library the file is listed as “unattached”.

    Can someone help me understand?

    I am trying to clean up my library and wanted to delete unattached media. But, now I can’t do that because if I do, I will be inadvertently deleting media that I am indeed using in posts….am I being totally dense here? Thanks for any guidance!!!
