    This tool is supposed to help you, it can’t do everything magically because that’s technically impossible (otherwise there would be many plugins doing the same things probably).

    Also, I am using Divi as my theme for my main website, and my tests are also performed on it so it works with it normally perfectly. But of course, it depends on how you integrate images as there is an infinite way to do that.

    When you have an issue with a free plugin, before giving a one-star review you should probably at least:
    – do some debugging
    – participate in the support threads
    – ask for help

    Of course, that’s if you want to help the developers, the users, yourself, and the WordPress community in general. Right now, it doesn’t help any of us, but it’s just hurting the plugin (and me).

    Something to keep in mind for next time.

    Hi Jordy,
    Indeed there is an advertising saying that the plugin may cause trouble and that it’s better to backup the site before using the plugin.
    This is a good advice.

    Without being “magical”, a plugin must allow functionalities easily and safely.
    This is the case with most of wp plugins i use, and this is not the case with Media Cleaner.

    If you have an idea how to make such a plugin easy and safe to use, please let me know.

    Meanwhile, I think that giving this plugin to someone who doesn’t know WordPress internals perfectly it’s like giving a knife to a baby. Unfortunately I can’t chose my users, but if I could, I would limit it to the experts.

    Sorry for upsetting you, i respect your work but we don’t have the same perception of a worlpress plugin.

    Anybody would agree that a plugin should be easy and safe. But a plugin can be literally anything, and you can’t expect that. So I guess you would rate badly “plane” as a “mean of transportation” you want to use by yourself, because you only know how to ride a bicycle or car 😉 That basically what it is. The term “plugin” means that it is a piece of code or software made to work in a certain environment. It doesn’t mean that it à for anyone, many plugins are targeting experts, like this one, andy it’s part of the description.
