Support » Plugin: Regenerate Thumbnails » Does a decent job of doing what I don’t want to do

  • I needed a plug-in to regenerate image thumbnails for a client. They have roughly 1,300 images stored and served through AWS/CloudFront. We only needed thumbnails regenerated, but this plug-in is regenerating ALL image sizes, not just thumbnails. As a result, it’s doing 5-10x more work than it should, and it’s timing out without any error messages after the first few hundred. It also failed to generate thumbnails for one of our images and gave reasons as “unknown” – not very helpful. I think it’s because the image is a tif, but that would be pretty easy to return as useful error message, so I’m not sure that’s it.

    WordPress refers to its images as “Image Sizes” and specifically the smallest of those is “Thumbnail.” The plug-in should be called “Regenerate Image Sizes” so its name matches what it actually does. Or at least make it clear on the plug-in page that your plug-in is using terminology differently from WordPress to avoid confusion.

    I gave this two stars because at least it did perform image resizing, even if it was for a bunch of image sizes it wasn’t meant to resize.
