Support » Plugin: Cleanup Images » Not suitable for image galleries

  • This plugin works fine for detecting those images directly referenced in posts but does it not pick up on legitimate files tied to image galleries. Those images are, therefore, deleted which is kind of a big problem. Good thing I had a backup! Not bad, otherwise but the plugin needs a little tweaking.

    The plugin deletes no image automatically an lists what it thinks are unused images for you to verify before you delete them. Image Gallery plugins typically do not reference the images in the same manner as WordPress does and so this plugin cannot recognize those images as being in-use. As noted, use with care and verify that the images aren’t used before deleting. This is simply a tool to help in that deletion for images used in Pages, Posts and Pods (not including usage of shortcodes).
