Support » Plugin: Media Deduper » Only Delete Images NOT In Post Content

  • Resolved claytonchase


    Is it possible to only delete duplicates that AREN’T output in the post body? I just have multiple copies of images (none are attached to the post) but I want to make sure the duplicates are output in posts anywhere.

    Hope that makes sense. Thanks!

    Thanks for your patience @claytonchase ! I’m finding out from one of our developers and will report back shortly.

    @claytonchase There is a column that can be sorted by how a duplicate is used, and it’s called Used In. Smart Delete will only delete the duplicates of the images you are selecting, and leaving any other duplicates in the list untouched if they weren’t selected for smart deletion. Even then, smart delete will keep one image and other instances with that one.

    Example: If there if images A, B, C, D are all duplicates of each other and I select A and B for smart delete, Media Deduper will delete them and replace all instances of A and B with C or D (whichever is more recent). All other instances of C and D will be left alone. If you select all, then Smart Delete will leave one of the 4 and replace the rest with that one.

    Hopefully that makes sense. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at Happy Tuesday!

    @cornershop thanks for looking into this and for the in-depth reply. That makes sense and that should work for what I’m trying to accomplish with it.
