  • Resolved adamjames128


    It seems I have a lot of image attachment pages that aren’t attached to specific pages/posts.

    So Yoast didn’t list them in the attachment XML and redirects aren’t working since they have nothing to redirect to.

    I know I can export media attachments/files in an XML but the document is not useable given my Excel knowledge.

    Is there an easy way to get a list of all the URL’s for unattached image attachment pages?

    Note: it would be really great if this plugin could provide a solution for this.

  • Hi Adam, I fiddled around with this last night using Number (Mac’s Excel) and a text editor. Anyways, if you like, you could email the the report and I would be happy to email back a text file with a list of the urls for you. Send to:
