  • how do i delete all the images in the gallery? i can only select 10 images at the same time, but i have more than 400 pages with images so that will take some time! if i delete the images trough a FTP application only the images are gone, but links in the media gallery is still there but without the images. isnt there any way that i can view like 100 images at the same time in the media gallery instead of only 10?

    FTP

    that doesn’t delete links and references from the media library in wordpress.

    The question was, “how do I delete images”. Using FTP will allow mass removal of images from a folder.

    @saurus: That was not the question prick. Just read better:

    how do i delete all the images in the gallery?

    What does that say, dumbass? That’s the first line of the question.

    Number two – you are NOT supposed to jump into someone elses post – the Codex is clear on that.

    Number three – if you are seriously looking for help from volunteers – what your mouth.

    Number four – the quote you posted is NOT a question – it’s a reference to what he has left after he deletes a picture. Not my problem – I don’t use the image gallery – and he didn’t ask how to fix that. In NO place did he pose a question “how do I get rid of the remaining links.

    Number five – if you want to be a smart-ass … learn to read better yourself. And take a class in reading interpretation while you’re at it.

    lol

    Don’t the associated images get removed when a post is deleted?

    If you use the media library you can select all on a page and chose bulk action delete
    Not ideal – but could save some time
    It could be a bit tricky picking the right images?
    – but they are ordered chronologically
    – plus there is a filter by month option too
