Great! I like the idea with the custom upload structure. But I would prefer a complete different structure: a folder named after the file name and all thumbnails placed inside that folder. Any chance?

Hallo! Ja, das ist komplett frei konfigurierbar über die Image size Konfiguration. Dort können Sie mit Platzhaltern Ihren Unterordner und Dateinamen speichern: Unterordner: filename Dateiname: size-identifier . extension Beste Grüße, Matthias :)

Thanks. It seems I have to give it a try :-)

I don’t know how I would live without Real Media Library, it’s one of my MUST HAVE plugins that I recommend to all my webdeveloper friends. Please always keep it up to date with new versions of Wordpress..

And now you released another product with innovative features like custom thumbnail folder structure that sets it apart from all other thumbnail generators

... amazing. I slammed the purchase button as soon as I saw who the author was as I know what I will get is a professionally, well coded and designed product that gets supported from a proven great developer who cares about his products and keeps adding improvements and features.

edit: just noticed another plugin from Matthias Real Category Management. Purchased as well.

Hello there! Thank you!! Yes, I do my best to keep the plugins up to date, and I like to hear from happy buyers. :) If you want and you like the other plugins you can leave this text as review. :) Best regards, Matthew

Nice work gud luck

Will this have any problem with hundreds of thousands of images and will it resize for all product images in woocommerce?

Hello there! The regeneration process itself works with all of your images and yes, also the woocommerce images in the media library. If you change the schema, it will not automatically apply to the old images, only new images will get the new schema. But on regeneration process you can force the new schema to old files. Best regards, Matthew :)

Thanks for the quick reply. The problem we have is that we have tried a few themes and now have approximately 10 image sizes for over 75,000 products. Most of the resized images are not being used and just taking up space on he server. Will this resizer delete all unused images when resizing?

Since your last theme switch have you already regenerated the thumbnails again? If no, the old ones will be detected and can be deleted. :)

Love this product but disappointed that it doesn’t work with square cropped images. I have a custom image size set to 160×160 in true cropped mode but this plugin only resizes an image to 160xPROPORTIONAL_HEIGHT and doesn’t hard crop it. Can this issue be resolved please? It’s default wordpress behaviour to have specific crop sizes so not sure why this wouldn’t work with it?

Yes, this seems to be a bug. I will start to debug and fix that… :)

Bug is fixed. I will upload the new version asap.

Thank you! Now this plugin is officially kick-ass!

I am very happy with the plugin but it is not deleting unused images. I have tried the bulk removal and also individually.

When I click on a single image and then click (Delete Unused sizes 3.8MB) it spins but then nothing happens and the unused images are still shown.

The “bug” is fixed. This is not a bug because the thumbnail file never existed. How have you created the custom size “__forceDelete”? Best regards, Matthew :)

No. It must be some other plugin. Thanks for having a look.

I see you manage a lot of images, have a look at this plugin https://codecanyon.net/item/wordpress-real-media-library-media-categories-folders/13155134 from me, it allows to organize your media library into folders. :-)

Hi MatthiasWeb , the plugin looks cool! Is there an option/button for “regenerate thumbnail” on the “Edit Post” page ? Regards

Hello there! Yes, the regenerate button is also in the edit post page when selecting an image. Best regards, Matthew :)

It’s buggy. It does always regenerate all thumbnail sizes, not just the selected ones.

That’s because of this code in general.js:

forceNewCheckbox = jQuery('input[type="checkbox"]')
forceNew = forceNewCheckbox.is(" :checked"),

You can fix it by inserting .first()>

forceNewCheckbox = jQuery('input[type="checkbox"]').first()

And keep in mind to also update the minified JS code in realthumbnailgenerator.min.js.

Hi Matthew, I know what ”.first()” does, but I think that’s exactly what you want to do there. You want to check the value of the “If there is an old schema for an…” checkbox only.

Your code does ignore the “only this thumbnails” setting if “forceNew” is set:

// Only allow "only this thumbnails" when they are given and we do not use a new schema
if (count($this->onlyThisSizes) > 0 && !$this->isForceNew) {

So whenever I check any of the thumbnail checkboxes, the setting is ignored and all of them are regenerated. So that feature is essentially not working.

Sorry… you are right! Thank you for that bug report and the associated solution! I will fix that for the next version update. Schöne Grüße, ein gutes neues Jahr und noch einen schönen Tag! :)

Perfect! Ebenfalls :)

Of course. The problem concerns the conflict with the plug: Ajax Search Pro When activated plug is not – does not create a directory with thumbnails
