Unattaching image attachments from post without deleting the image? (5 posts)

    Is there a way to unattach files from posts without deleting them? Plugin perhaps?

    I find it much easier to spew out the all the thumbnail images that are related to a post than one-by-one "insert to post". But when I want to take some images out of that post and still keep the image cause it's attached to another post.

    I found very little info on this one and no topics in forum. Someone posted a idea to ideas http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic.php?id=3338#post-14112

    All help appreciated! Thanks :)

    Hi there :)

    I've been working on my "File Gallery" plugin for a while now and it's available for download and testing from here: http://skyphe.org/code/wordpress/file-gallery/

    Among other features, you can use it to detach (unattach) attachments from posts.

    Please leave a comment if you find it useful, cheers :)

    You can always go ninja, and tweak some data in the database. Probably not for the faint of heart: http://www.joelgerard.com/2010/11/12/unattach-wordpress-image-from-post/
