[resolved] Files used in WP 'featured image' get deleted (4 posts)

    This plugin will mark any file used as a header, as per the 'featured image' feature of WordPress, as unused, if there isn't actually a link from the post itself. There is not warning that the plugin will removed the featured images. Is there any way to avoid this?

    The plugin searches in pages and posts for links to the files. I will update the plugin to search relation in the database.
    Were you able to restore files from the saved folder ?

    Chris, that would be awesome if you did update it, I don't think there is any other plugin available that would do this.
    I hadn't ran the script, I was careful to check what it was going to do before executing ;)

    Added in version 1.1. Please tell me if it works on your system.
    Thank you for your help

    PS: even if you run the script files are not deleted but only moved in one subfolder of uploads using the same structure than the WP uploads so it's really easy to restore files
