  • Resolved Espi


    I was hoping I could get some information on how this plugin chooses the orphaned attachments. I ran this on my test site and it removed files that had been in use on template files, but also images that had been being used as featured images.

    Could you provide details about how these orphaned files are found?

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    There currently appears to be a bug in how the orphaned attachments are determined
    I have added this issue to our buglist, and we will investigate the issue.

    This feature has now been removed from WP-O free, with the release of WP-O 2.2.1. Its functionality is included in the ‘Remove unused images’ feature in the Premium version…. which has the advantage of visually showing you all images which are about to be removed, as well as excluding the images which were erroneously included in 2.2.0. We apologise for the bug in this feature in the 2.2.0 release.
