    Hi there,

    Despite the fact that I installed this plugin when It was released, I still have many attachment urls indexed in Google. Now all the urls in the sitemap have 2018-07-02 as their last modified time.

    In order to make google crawl those links again, I want to update that data manually. I tried to remove and then reinstall the plugin, but it didn’t help.

    Could you please advise how I can change that date to a newer time so things get resolved sooner?

    Much appreciated

    Changing the date will not help you.
    This date is used to determine which attachments have to be purge.
    It compares if the post date (because every attachment has an entry in the wp_posts table) is lower or equal to the date the plugin was installed. So altering this will only cause that not all of your attachment will be included in the sitemap (in the worst case the attachment sitemap is not generated because no attachments were found).

    I would recommend that your update your sitemap in the google webmaster tools and force reindexing. This should remove the urls.
