  • Resolved imagiNed


    Images in standard WordPress photo galleries are not identified as in use and therefore are assigned to the deletion list. This is with WP 3.6.1 and plugin v1.6.0.

    The gallery code is standard:
    [gallery columns="5" link="file" ids="1303,1304,1305,1306,1307,1308,1309,1310,1311,1350,1351,1352,1364,1365,1366,1367,1368,1369,1370,1371,1372,1373,1374,1375,1376,1377"]

    so it should be possible/easy to pick up the ids and determine that the images are in use.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    Definitely, this should be detected as it is a common usage of WordPress and one of its core feature. I will support it in the next update.

    Thank you, Jordy, looking forward to the next update.

    I tried it on a gallery and it works fine – the gallery images are properly identified and do not show in the issues. It looks like this problem has been resolved.

    Do you confirm imagiNed?



    This is odd, because it worked and now it doesn’t work for old galleries. Maybe something is lost in between the sessions, maybe it has to do with the Reset function? I will see what I can find out.

    This should work now 🙂
