    I’m looking for a way to find all the hotlinked images on my WordPress site among over 4,000 posts and pages. I want to eliminate the practice.

    There was a plugin called “Cache Images” that would be perfect for the job, but forum comments say that it stopped working a while back, and it’s no longer supported.

    Are you looking for all of the images linked to in your own site’s content, or are you looking for folks who are linking to your images on their own sites?

    I am looking for all the images linked in my site’s content.

    I thought “cache images” was working, but at least it is finding URLs of hotlinked images and putting some of them in the Media library.

    OK, Cache Images is working in almost all cases. It’s throwing a handful of false positives, and it won’t automatically fix a couple.
