Support » Plugin: Ultimate media cleaner » No way possible to use this plugin

  • This plugin does a bunch of super risky stuff. It knows it, you know it. Almost certain its going to go bad.

    But instead of having a revert changes option, or a soft delete option…… you have to buy the full version?

    So you can’t even really test this, unless on a test site. backup shmackup. If it screws up and I have to revert to a backup, my site is still screwed up, in the meantime other things might have been added to my dbase that wont be in the backup.

    No plugin should be allowed that out of the box is too dangerous to use, unless you get the paid version. Remember those two airbusses that crashed a few years ago? They were the budget version, without the built in safety version of the premium version.

    This plugin, is like the cheap airbus. The safety feature should be mandatory.

    Worthless

    I will try to make some abstraction about how you write your review, and i will say that i will add one backup system with this plugin, but there are good backup system plugin out there.

    I put a lot of warnings to help people like you to understand about the risk of using this plugin without any bits of knowledge, so yes delete this plugin if you don’t know what are you doing, this plugin is not for simple minds 😉

    I don’t know what are you seeing about the PRO version.. it seems that the word are not the best to explain what the pro version will do, the UNDOS buttons are only to delete it from the list, not revert them if you already delete the file/image (I will try change the text, to add a better one)

    For the moment the PRO version, i only add the ideas that i will put in the pro version, is not public yet, so I don’t know about your comment “unless you get the paid version”, for the PRO version I will add only “nice to have” (like remove from the list all image/files, and not one by one like the free version), in the free version (wp) you will have “need to have”

    I think this this plugin is like “one-shot usage”, so in my mind, you should do:

    In only one day (you can take one day without making news post or page, to make this maintenance activity )
    * Make one backup of your site
    * Add one test post or page with test images/files
    * See if the plugin is working and detecting the images/file are used
    * Delete the unused test files or images
    * See if the test post or page is working as it should
    * If the plugin is working for this test, go with some productions post and page (like the oldest or the least viewed posts or pages)
    * See if the plugin is working and detecting the images/file are used
    * Delete the unused files or images

    You have two possible result: Working, not working

    Working

    * Keep going with other images and files, but trying to see if your site still working
    * Delete all unused files/images
    * Normally your site is free of unused files, so you can delete and forget about the plugin

    Not working

    * restore your site from the backup system
    * Delete the plugin
    * Find another plugin
