Cleanup your Media Library and disk storage by finding and deleting unused images in the Media Library.
Since our website relies highly on images, I was somewhat hesitant to install and use this plugin after reading some of the one and two star reviews, but I have to say that version 1.04 of the plugin and WP 4.1 worked perfect! Our media library isn't huge, however, so I can't say if the issues described have now been fixed, but for us it did a great job. It automatically kept the Thumbnails, even if referenced "unused", and it now has a feature that lets you check only those images that are not used, eliminating any confusion any one may have had manually selecting images... All in all it did a solid job!
Seems to work on 4.0.1 but to be fair I tested this out on my stagingserver with not that much content on my website, mainly header/background images.
It worked for me. Plus something unexpected.
I had to install a new WordPress one level "down" from the old one.
site.com/ to site.com/wp/
I had a HUGE image mess.
The images in the new site still pointed to the old site. I tried importing more than once, my host transferred them into the new directery (I know now that does not work), I tried plugins to pull the images into my new site - some did not recognize the old site as different, etc...I ended up with 3,500 photos, not 300, 90% not recoginized by my site - nor dealt with other fix-it plugins. Some were not showing on the site, but were in the database, and whatever else was going on.
I turns out there were a ton of "phantom" images too. Images not actually present, but recorded in the database. I learned that from this plugin.
This plugin deleted the duplicates. AND Updated my database about missing images that everything else said were there. A life saver.
I only deleted 20-50 at a time and periodically checked my site. No problem.
My web site has over 20K Images, I'm not able to delete duplicate images or unused images. May you please update this Plugin and allow us to select and amount a images not just the entire Media Directory?
Put an option to select 50, 100, 500 or 1,000 images per section to remove. I need to remove a lot images.
Needed to clean up unused sizes for over 10K images ...
Worked Like a Charm.
Might want to put option when selecting «Select/Deselect all unused child images» to exclude the 150X150 as that size thumbs are used by the WP admin media library :)
(I just regenerated that size to overcome!)
Great Work, Cheers !
It is very useful. Good job on the re-make. It works very well on my site with 1000 or 2000 images. My other site with 20 000 images, it hangs on the first start screen, I guess it's a bit too much, cant cancel so i have to restart Apache.
