    Hi,

    Thanks for showing interest towards PRO version. Do let me know incase you have any doubts.

    Regarding your doubt, auction data is stored in separate table created by my plugin. Auction pages are generated via shortcode. Images are uploaded in default image repository of wordpress. This is done to reuse image functionality of WP.

    If you delete auction from the plugin then images would still be there.

    Cheers,
    Nitesh

    Hmmm….

    So there is the potential of having thousands of images build up over time. That could be a big problem with hosting storage.

    You may want to look in to an orphaned image removal tool.

    Valid point. But you could easily maintain them by going to WP admin dashboard -> Media -> And delete them.

    Also, I can analyze if plugin itself can delete images for auctions that ended or deleted.

    That would be easy at first, but the more active users you get the harder that would be to manage.

    It would be a great feature if there was an orphaned cleanup tool, or like you were saying, the images get deleted when the auctions do.

    Do ended auctions have to be manually deleted as well? Would be really cool if you could set them to auto delete a set time after the auctions end.

    For example, you set the auto delete to 20 days. So 20 days after the auction ends, it automatically deletes, along with the images associated with it.

    Thanks for your help.

    I appreciate your interest and feedback. It really gives end user’s perspective.

    Just to let you know, Plugin already has bulk delete feature. So it would help you clean up quickly.

    One thing more, the essence of plugin is that they should be light and provide some added functionality. In my case, plugin is already feature rich and is getting heavy day by day but please understand that auto-delete features would eventually require code additions which in-turn would make the plugin bulky and eventually slows down the website.

    We need to choose feature set which are critical towards front end functionality and do not offer work around as is the case with bulk delete.

    Cheers,
    Nitesh
