Support » Fixing WordPress » How to re-process all images
4 years, 7 months ago
I’ve got a blog that has the highest-resolution version of all its images embedded in the posts, rather than a thumbnail linking off to an image attachment page.
Can you tell me how I can re-process all embedded images so they’re output as reduced size thumbnails that link off to their own attachment page (which is WordPress default settings)?
Am I right in thinking I can involve the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin in this?
Yes, that plugin is good, but I prefer this one:
because it will not “freeze” your server if there are too many pics to be generated. It uses AJAX to do so.
From my understanding these plugins won’t take embedded images and turn them in to thumbnails linking to attachment pages?
No it won’t. They will only regenerate the missing images (including the thumbs), the default image sizes and custom sizes you might have defined.
That’s a shame. I’m looking to re-index these posts and generate attachment pages for each currently embedded image.
