Media Cleaner

Descripción

Media Cleaner cleans your Media Library from the media entries (and files) which aren’t used in your website, as well as broken entries. An internal trash allows you to make sure everything works properly before deleting the media entries (and files) permanently. It uses a smart analysis powered by many implementations for specific plugins and themes.

Before using this plugin, make sure you have a proper backup of your install. This step is not optional; it is required. You cannot trust any tools modifying or deleting your files.

For compatibility, Pro version and important information, please read this until the end. Last but not least, it is necessary to read the tutorial. It is available on the official website, here: Media Cleaner.

VERY IMPORTANT

This tool is a knife. Do not use it if you don’t have any backup, or if you don’t understand what it does. This plugin does its best to help you. Learn how to use it and you will get awesome results.

ESCRITORIO

Los archivos detectados como no utilizados se mostrarán en un escritorio específico. Dependerá de ti para borrarlos. Luego se moverán a una papelera interna del plugin. Después de más pruebas, puedes recuperar esos archivos de la papelera o borrarlos permanentemente.

COMPATIBILIDAD

It works with any kind of media entries, including their retina and/or WebP versions. It is tested on modern WordPress installs (Gutenberg included) as well as older ones, with various themes and by a community of thousands of users. It does support WooCommerce. As it requires meticulous a lot of work and testing, the Pro version might be required if you are using complex plugins to handle the content of your website. I am constantly increasing the compatibility.

PRO VERSION

The Pro version adds Filesystem Analysis, extra support for complex plugins, Live Site option and WP-CLI support.

With the Filesystem Analysis, Media Cleaner Pro scans your physical /uploads directory, and match it against the Media Library. It also has extra support for complex plugins, such as:

  • ACF (+ ACF Widgets)
  • Divi Builder
  • Fusion Builder (Avada)
  • Visual Composer (WPBakery)
  • Elementor
  • Beaver Builder
  • Brizy Builder
  • Oxygen Builder
  • And more (Theme X, ZipList Recipe, UberMenu…)

The Live Site option will analyze the online version of your website, which might enhance the accuracy of the Cleaner in edge-cases.

Last but not least, Media Cleaner Pro has support for WP-CLI. If you have direct access (SSH) to your server, you will be able to run the plugin at a much higher speed or have it ran automatically, if you like.

DE NUEVO, TEN CUIDADO

Better to be safe than sorry. This plugin deletes files! Therefore, backup is not only important, it is necessary. Don’t use this plugin if you are not ready. I can’t help you if you damaged your install.

SPECIAL THANKS

  • Mike Meinz, an amazing developer from the US who made a thorough debugging of the whole process, load lot of corrections and optimizations, and added support for more plugins.
  • Satoshi Soma, an excellent Japanese developer who helped me when I needed it the most.

Едва установив программу, увидел 2 информационных сообщения вроде: ваша база данных не поддерживается, у вас установлена не Про версия приложения, а это неправильно. После этих сообщений желания испытывать плагин не испытываю.

Thank you very much for your work. This plugin is really great and allowed me to save a lot of time, especially with the WP CLI commands (with the Pro version).

I run this periodically to clean out my media library and I've come to trust it. The first few times I ran it I went through the files to verify them manually but I've come to realize it does a pretty good job. Yes I always back up my media DB before I run it, but I haven't had problems with it.

10 stars not 5!!! Worth every cent. Buy the Pro Version. I have been looking for a tool like this for years. Finally an image "clean-up" tool to find the orphan images and unused images from years of website changes/migrations and theme changes. Read the instructions! The "trash" folder option is a must for any accidental deletes. Don't rush into clicking buttons without understanding how this tool works ... >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Read the instructions! <<<<<<<<<<<<<< Nice work Jordy
