Very good plugin
By , for WP 4.3.1

Thank you for this plugin as it help me a lot with bloated wp.

I have a website a few years now and about 6.000 images which wp and themes scaled to around 80.000 and this was a huge problem.

It scans the database very nicely and index all referenced images in it, however it did remove some of the used images, but this was expected as after years of having this website, changing different themes and plugins it was unavoidable. Having option to move instead to delete image is a grate option and im very thankful. However moving images was really labor intensive cause lacking some options to speed things up.

I guess in perfect conditions where the same theme, plugins and wp setup was used from the beginning and all the images are uploaded thru the wp this plugin would work perfectly, but unfortunately this is not the case for most of the wp sites.

Since this plugin wasn't updated for 2 years now i guess its a time for update and refreshing it and i have a few suggestions.

- Page options to increase number of displayed images per page.
- Search option for ease of finding and restoring images.
- Instead adding manually path for skipping images (complicated for newbies) maybe scanning uploads folder and adding check-boxes for folder to scan.
- Options to choose location and rename folder for moved images.
- Adding Edit option for images meta.
- Flexibility to scan and reference images not uploaded thru wp ex: logo,favicon,etc (by checking for links on images as for reference in database or something else)

Overall very good plugin even its a 2 years old but still working perfectly it did reduce my upload folder for more than 60%, im happy. Thank you

useful

The plugin is really useful, but it will move also images in page but not attached, like the logo...

It would be really helpful to have a search field, it's almost impossible to find the image I want to restore between 7000+ images!

Very handy!

Thank you for this plugin! I had a site with thousands of unused image files, as the plugins that generated them were no longer in use and we were migrating to a new custom-built theme. With your plugin I was able to easily remove over 3000 unused image files!

Not perfect but still great!

Sometimes it gives an Error and you have to try over and over again, most of the time it does work though.

I would love to see a restore option because I accidently deleted an image I wanted to keep.

Does it work with Woocommerce? I wasn't brave enough to try it out...

Thanks for creating this!

Where did images go?
By , for WP 4.1.1

It would be greater if it was clear where the moved images go to: /wp-content/uploads/imagecleanup/0

Do what is says
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin do what it says. It list all images with good overwiev and gives uptions to cleane up/delete.

Some minor flaws in options that I want but over all a good tool to clean out the garbage files.

Little Buggy But Accurate
By , for WP 3.8

Ran the first the index and selected files to delete. At first they wouldn't delete. Then realized that the bottom global command selection for delete doesn't work, but the top one does. Deleted 300 or so images and spot verified that there were no false positives. This IMHO is the heart and soul of the plugin. Does it accurately find unused images? Yes and very well in my test - 5 stars.

Now on to doing a larger batch for 2nd test. Deleted a bunch of portfolio posts and ran the index again. This time it didn't find any orphaned images even though I just deleted and emptied the trash for 70 or so posts that had featured images attached to them.

If I understand the FAQ properly, one must delete all the images from the index before doing a second index? What if I don't want to delete images that the theme uses from the upload directory?

For a one time scan the plugin is great. But it failed me as on-going maintenance tool if there is no way to clear the 1st index and start new again.
