    Hello Users,

    I want to upload few images but wordpress start creating their thumbnails and start occupying more server space. Please help me to stop these thumbnails.

    Thanks.

    P.S : In Admin - Settings - Miscellaneous - There is no option to stop it

    Edit - I am using 2.7 beta 3

    I am using 2.6.5 and have been looking for a way to disable any generation of extra versions in WordPress because I need just one and I get more. Even worse: when you delete the original in the Media section, the scaled alternatives remain on your server...

    So: who can help?
    WHAT file do I modify so WordPress JUST uploads the jpg files and does no extra postprocessing creating whatever versions it creates?

    Hello there.

    I found a way to get rid of them in 2.7. It is the simplest thing ever... Just go to Options->Objects and then set to 0 every single text input and unselect the tick box.

    Somehow it makes sense, doesn't it?

    Where do you find Options -> Objects in WordPress Admin?

    Hi Ajay.

    You can find them at Settings -> Media in wp 2.7.1

    See you.

    Javier.
