Support » Plugin: AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild » Works great on WordPress 4.7.1

  • We’ve been using this plugin for years at our site. However, I noted in January 2017 that a little warning pops up saying that this plugin hasn’t been updated in a while, and it cautions the reader that the plugin may not work. Well I just want you to know that it continues to function beautifully on the latest WordPress core (4.7.1 as I’m writing this).

    Besides our production site, we have created various other versions of our site on virtual machines where we do our development work. Since our site has a huge number of images, we just do an SQL query to get a list of the original uploads, and then we only have to move these original photos onto the development versions of our site. After the originals are in place, we use AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild to just make the thumbnail sizes that we actually use. Besides freeing up time and bandwidth by only copying a fraction of the images at our production site, it also keeps our uploads directories from getting filled up with image sizes that various themes have created in the past which we aren’t currently using.

    In addition if there are image sizes that you only use when displaying featured images, you can constrain AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild to only make those sizes for your featured images. For instance, at our site we only use the smallest thumbnail size to show related posts, and this only makes use of the featured images for the related posts. So we can skip making the smallest thumbnails for the vast majority of our photos.
