Support » Fixing WordPress » Get a list of all the post associated with an attachment

  • Is there a way to display a list of all the posts an attachment is associated with (all the posts in which you can find the image on my website).

    I want to say for example ‘This image can be found in [post title A] and [post title B]

    I would also like the post titles to be wrapped in an anchor with the url of the post.

    This may or may not be possible? I look forward to finding out though, so that I can move on!

    Each attachment will only be associated (attached) to one post. get_permalink($post->post_parent) will return the attachment’s parent Post or Page if used inside the Loop.

    Thanks Esmi,

    Is there a way of showing multiple posts (if an attachment is used in more than one post)?

    No. WordPress only stores one Post/Page attachment per media file – usually the page that the file was first inserted into or the page being edited when the attachment file was uploaded. No further uses of the file are stored.

    Ok – thanks for the heads up. I can now move on.
