Will this remove old uninstalled plugin leftovers from the database?

Hi,

Theia Upload Cleaner scans and cleans your Uploads folder. It does not remove files from your database.

Best regards, Razvan

Looks interesting – So will this remove unused versions of a single uploaded image – e.g. thumbs etc if not used? Of course WP by default crunches lots of variants of an image. Also is there an option to delete dated folders in each years folder if there are no images in there?

Hi,

As long as the version of the single uploaded image are not in your website’s database, they will be removed. We check the database for any matching files with the Upload folder in order to not delete anything that might be used. Database basically means any post, any page, any custom specialized image fields, and so on.

Regarding last question, right now this is not a feature, but we thank you for your suggestion and we will surely implement it into our next update.

Best regards, Razvan

Love the idea, but do you have any plans to clean up the database as well? That would be a killer feature.

Hi there,

We’re glad you find it useful. :) Indeed that would be a great feature to have and we’re looking into doing just that, more precisely cleaning not just the uploads folder but the WordPress Media Library as well of any unused files. We hope to have it ready in one of our next updates.

Cheers, Liviu

I have thousands of unused photos, related to sold items in my woocommerce database. Is the plugin usefull to elimitate those reduntant images no more included in any product page?

Hi there,

It depends if those photos are still somehow referenced in your database. Can you still see them from the Media Library? If yes, then at the moment Theia Upload Cleaner won’t remove them, but we’re working on this for our next release. However if the images are not in the media library or referenced anywhere else, the plugin will proceed and clean them.

Cheers, Liviu

Thank you, so… if I make any kind of mistake or if the plugin accidentally cancels current images can I still restore them without damages?

Of course, by “cleaning” the plugin actually moves your files to a backup location. Once you thoroughly check your site that it’s working properly you can either restore or permanently delete the files. You can leave the backup for even a day or two to be 100% sure that all’s good and you haven’t missed anything.

Cheers, Liviu

Hi,

The scan is not launching when i try to scan. Any common reason?

Hi there,

Not sure what is preventing the scan from starting, so please open a ticket over at https://wecodepixels.zendesk.com and we’ll be happy to assist.

Thank you kindly, Liviu

Hi WCP,

I am looking for a plugin that will help to get rid of many of the redundant files that are taking up large amounts of space on my server. At the moment we are using 18.91 GB of disk space and this is growing all of the time. Anything that can help reduce this amount would be a god send as we will have to upgrade our package soon otherwise.

I hope that it will delete all the sizes that the wordpress media libary creates as we only use at most 2 of these within the site itself.

Also any idea when the database and media libary clean up will be added as this again would be very beneficial?

Hi there,

We are currently working on solution for your use-case. Right now the plugin only removes images that are completely not used – i.e. it does not remove only certain thumbnails. But there are ways around it – for example we could completely remove certain sizes and then re-generate them on-the-fly when needed. Feel free to open a ticket over at https://wecodepixels.zendesk.com so that we can notify you when we have a beta version ready.

Cheers, Liviu

Hello, are there any plans to possibly take into consideration images referenced in CSS files? For example, something like this (a background image):

body { 
  background-image: url("/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/image.jpg"); 
}

Thanks! - David.

Hi David,

We will add that to our bucket list, but until then we will be adding exclude filters for our next releases. So you could exclude certain files or entire directories depending on your site’s structure.

All the best, Liviu

Hi, I got this:

An error has occurred: {"readyState":4,"responseText":"","responseJSON":null,"status":500,"statusText":"Internal Server Error"}

Hi there,

I am sorry to hear that, can you please open a ticket over at http://wecodepixels.zendesk.com with a temporary admin account so we can have a look?

All the best, Liviu

I have submitted a ticket hopefully I will hear from someone soon with a solution – I really need to try and clean this clients media library :) Thank you

Hey there – when can we expect the next plugin update? Very excited to see what you guys are going to do next, thanks!

Hi David,

We’ll be pushing the new update in a few days. It comes with a new exclusion filter for directories, and also the ability to remove empty left-over folders. Stay tuned! :)

Cheers, Liviu

This is a fantastic, must-have plugin to easily clean up a Media Library. It quickly and accurately removed about 150 MB from my site’s Media Library. My big concern is that I use a lot of slider plugin photo slideshows on the site, but Theia Upload Cleaner accurately detected all of those and left them in place. Of course, it also detected when media items were directly linked to pages/posts and left those in place as well.

I would give this plugin a 5-star rating.

Hi guys, installed the update but got a new error message on activating: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class TucMisc in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/codecanyon-15656488-theia-upload-cleaner-for-wordpress/TucMisc.php on line 10

Any thoughts? Tnx

Hi,

Please make sure that you have uninstalled the previous version before installing the new one. This should solve the problem.

Thank you, Liviu

I change memory allowed from 128 to 256, nothing change same problem

Hi there,

I am sorry to hear that. Since there are probably a lot of files and table rows, can you try increasing your memory size even more, for example to 512M? Another option would be to scan directories one by one. If you’re still running into issues please open a ticket over and we’ll have a look as soon as possible: https://wecodepixels.com/submit-a-support-request/

Thank you, Liviu

Thank you

I already sent 2 requests for support for this plugin; bought it but it´s not working as expected. Could you reply? my email is renteriah@hotmail.com.

Hi there,

I have just replied to your tickets, please check your inbox. I apologize for not replying sooner, but me and my team are not at the office during weekends.

In a post from 9 months ago, you stated that you are working on an update that will delete unused files that are referenced in the database. Are you still working on that? I bought the plugin today, somehow missing the part in the plugin description that says it won’t delete unused files that are referenced in the media Library. I do see it now, so I know it’s my own fault, but the plugin doesn’t do me much good if it still leaves any unused images. Thanks.

Hello, are you there? I sent this question via support form as well a few days ago and haven’t received a response. In a post from 9 months ago”, you stated that you are working on media library cleanup feature for the “next release”. Are you still working on this and will release it soon? I need to know so that I can work on doing it manually if not. Thanks

Hi Michael,

Indeed this is something we are planning on adding in the future, but it’s very tricky to do and we don’t have a timeframe to give you. I have replied to your ticket with more details.

Thank you and all the best, Liviu

Hi there, I purchased this plugin a while ago and love the idea, but I’m a bit confused; I have thousands of images not being used in any posts anymore, but it’s only removing a small amount of images. I understand the limitations that the images can’t be referenced in the database, but if an image isn’t being used in a post or anywhere else on the site, why wouldn’t it be removed (i.e. why would it still be in the db)?

Thank you!

Hi there,

Thank you for your message. The images that are still inside your media library can be referenced by various plugins/themes by their ID instead of their URL/filename. Right now we are successfully finding all references by URL/filename, but it’s very hard to find references by ID. An image can have ID number “100”, and this number can appear in virtually any place in the database, but we can’t know for sure whether “100” is a reference to that image or something else. We’re still looking for better approaches to this issue. Hope this clears things up a bit!

All the best, Liviu
