Media Cleaner: Clean your WordPress!

Beschreibung

Media Cleaner is a powerful plugin that helps you clean up your WordPress media library by deleting unused media entries and files, as well as fixing broken entries. With an internal trash feature, you can preview and confirm changes before permanently deleting anything. Plus, Media Cleaner uses smart analysis to ensure compatibility with specific plugins and themes.

Use it alongside Database Cleaner for the ultimate clean-up experience.

Media Cleaner is like a ninja assassin for your Media Library – it’ll stealthily take out all the unnecessary media and broken entries that are cluttering up the place. Just make sure you have a solid backup plan in place before you let this bad boy loose.

To learn more about compatibility, features, and the Pro version, check out the tutorial on the official website.

COMPATIBILITY

This plugin is compatible with all media types, including retina and WebP versions. It has been tested on a wide range of WordPress versions, including the latest version with Gutenberg, as well as on various themes with a large community of users. It also supports WooCommerce. For users with more complex plugins for handling website content, the Pro version may be necessary for optimal compatibility. We are constantly working to increase compatibility with other plugins.

PRO VERSION

Media Cleaner Pro adds extra features to the free version of Media Cleaner:

  • Filesystem Analysis: Scans your physical /uploads directory and matches it against the Media Library.
  • Extra support for complex plugins, such as ACF, Metabox, Divi Builder, Fusion Builder (Avada), WPBakery Page Builder, Visual Composer, Elementor, Beaver Builder, Brizy Builder, Oxygen Builder, Slider Revolution, Justified Image Grid, Avia Framework, and many more!
  • Live Site Scan: Analyzes the online version of your website, potentially improving accuracy in some cases.
  • WP-CLI support: Allows you to run the plugin at a higher speed or automatically with direct server access (via SSH).

Repeated ERROR on the back end when scanning directories or the media library. I ended up deleting files via FTP by hand.

It saved me a lot of time when cleaning up my website of very old content. I could ignore some archives that were needed to ignore, and check the file sizes before deleting the images. My storage went from 15GB to 6GB after using (I think properly) this plugin. I used the PRO version, recommended.

The plugin works well, and I have deleted 2GB of unnecessary media files. The support is responsive, cooperative, and goes the extra mile to ensure compatibility with other plugins and themes. Highly recommended!

Lots of bugs, it doesn't do anything in the free version, so we can be suspicious of the PRO version.When scanning, an error message appears.It says that all the images are not in the content, but they are!So don't delete the images!I still think the developer's request to not blame the Media Cleaner plugin for any confusion is sincere. I'm laughing at this point, but unfortunately I can't give zero stars.
