Really delete old thumbnails and regenerate it!!! Much better then Regenerate Thumbnails"
I was always annoyed by this plugin, because the original never gave me any problems regenerating thumbnails so why would I need to force it?
But after dealing with 69,000 images I checked what happened. Regenerate thumbnails leaves the old, unused thumbnails!
I wish it had an option to replace sizes in post content though, as I fear this will leave some 404 images. This could be fixed by an htaccess rewrite in your upload directory, but that's a bit hacky!
I've tried other thumbnail regenerators over the years. This one just takes the cake!
I had trouble getting this to work until I figured out php-gd on Ubuntu wasn't installed. Once installed and php restarted it worked like a charm.
I use this plugin on just about every site I develop.
I appreciate that it deletes previous thumbnail sizes, which helps clean up unused files.
Super great plugin, one of the best. I used it multiple times since I redesigned my custom theme several times, so everytime I needed to regenerate images. The only thing this plugin would make even better is to have a pause/continue button because when there are thousands of them, well it takes time to regenerate and everything can happen in between. :)
This plugin worked magic on all my broken images!
fixed thumbnails after import from Joomla with cms2cms
All images and videos were replaced by generic placeholder icons after a server migration, while both the media files and the database paths were each migrated correctly.
I haven't found the cause for this problem, but regenerating thumbnails using this plugin restored all media, just perfect.
