hello, I would like to know if your module is better than this https://fr.wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

I hope not to be disappointed with the after sales service

Hi! I can not say if it is better but I can inform you about huge differences: You can customize the amount of to regenerate sizes and skip existing thumbnails – this improves the workflow immense. Also RTG uses bulk requests to reduce server requests. Best regards, Matthew :-)

I just purchased WP Real Thumbnail Generator to generate thumbnails for PDFs. But I cannot get PDF thumbnail creation to work. WordPress 5.3.2 and I also have WP Real Media Library

no, WordPress does not generate a thumbnail automatically with I upload a PDF when Real Thumbnail Generator is deactivated..

I found the problem – imagick is not enabled by default on SIteGround but they have a help file which explains how to enable it.

Hi! Nice to hear, that it is now working. If you like the plugin we would be happy to receive a rating here on CodeCanyon.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Hi, just want to ask if the plugin (in bulk mode) will automatically delete all unchecked thumbnails. For example, if I only choose to regenerate 150×150, without checking all other kinds of sizes, and run the bulk regenerate, will the plugin only regenerate the 150×150 size images and delete all old thumbnails existed in my directory? I have many images and they all have up to 16 kinds of different sizes of thumbnails which is a huge burden, so basically I only want to keep the 150×150 thumbnail and delete all other sizes

It seems can delete unwanted thumbnail in the analysis mode, but I am not sure if there is an automatic way. I am still running the analysis

Hi! Yeah, you need to delete the unused thumbnail sizes with an own button and this is not done automatically.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Hi! Is it possible generate just medium thumbnails in a single image (not bulk), for example?

Ok, have you unregistered the other image sizes or are the still registered to WordPress?

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Thanks for helping me even I didn’t order yet. I’ve unregistered unused thumbnails sizes, I just can’t unregister wordpress defaults.

Hi again! Sorry for the delayed answer. We had a look at this and have put it on our feature backlog. Due to the fact that this feature is now requested once we can not promise an ETA for this.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

For some reason plugin never completes the thumbnail generation. How do I check whats wrong here ?

Hi there! How many images do you regenerate? It seems there is thrown an error. Can you please check your network tab and the response from the server? Also it is worth to check the PHP error log.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Hi I would like to give the package a try for a week then buy if it works well, Having troubles getting the images to size correctly on some items, have found one that works but I have to regen everyone every time, tried 4 others and they dont work, so can we try yours if it works the purchase is of no issue I just dont want to purchase and then apply for a refund

Hi there! Unfortunately we can not give out a trial PRO version as this is not allowed by Envato – sorry. I think the best is currently to buy the plugin and if it does not work for you, you will get a full refund.

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Is there a way to set `thumbnailFolder` to be from root of uploads folder?

I would like to have all the thumbs inside `uploads/thumbs` + whole structure and not as subfolder of image location. I suggest something like `//thumbs` (double slash) so that would indicate my feature.

Maybe introduce some simple action hook, so I can alter this freely?

Is it possible to help me somehow?

I can monkey-patch myself: just give me a hint where is best to put apply_filter; in which line of which file.

Thanks in advance…

Hi there! Thanks for your interesting feature request. For such requests can you please join our public slack channel so we can discuss something like this directly there: https://devowl.io/slack. Just a side-node, we tried a similar thing a long time ago, unfortunately we were not able to put the thumbnail folder / picture one level up (technically WordPress was not able to resolve ”..” because it did not use realpath()).

Best regards, Matthew :-)

Hi again! I did not test this plugin yet, but you should definitely checkout our free version Real Thumbnail Generator, which allows you both testing together: https://wordpress.org/plugins/real-thumbnail-generator-lite/

Does this product allow for creation of thumbnails from Youtube, Vimeo or any uploaded videos?

Hi joed777,

this plugin regenerates thumbnails of uploads in the WordPress media library. As YouTube and Vimeo are different platforms that your website, this is not possible. Both platforms have an upload form for the thumbnails of videos, uploaded on these platforms.

Best regards,

Jan

Hi, Jan! Thank you for so promptly getting back to me. So what you’re saying is that Youtube and Vimeo have functionality built in to generate custom thumbnails? I know that these platforms will generate thumbnails of the posted videos, but they have limitations. Thanks again. By the way, I think your platform stands on its own impressive merits for other purposes :-)

hello, I am interested in your plugin but would like to know does it allow us to (block or not create unused and unnecesay thumbnail sizes and can it also delete not needed thumbnail sizes? wordpress + theme + extra plugins all create too many thumbnails in different sizes for every single image in a post.. this is not necessary when the only image that might need all the extra sizes is the first featured image not every single image in the body of the post but wordpress generates them all… does this plugin help us manage this issue in order to save HD space and make backups smaller etc etc? and will it allow us to regenerate specific size thumbs if we have made a mistake by deleting a size that is needed? .. I have your other media folder plugins and I am looking for a full and real solution to handle the bloated media library and massive excessive disk space it takes up due to thousands of thumbnails of various sizes that will never ever be viewed used or needed. does your plugin help manage this problem better ? also does your plugin optimise the generated thumbs as it creates them or do we still need additional image optimisation plugin as well?

any chance you could incorporate the “animated gif resize” plugin from the repository into your plugin so it resolves this issue?

That plugin works for the job but has been abandoned by the developer so no updates or support responses for several years however it does still actually work and there are links to browse the code and dev logs on the plugins repository page. (this would totally solve the animated gif issue for all fo your plugin users if you incorporated it ) https://wordpress.org/plugins/animated-gif-resize/

I have just purchased this plugin to obtain the feature of placing thumbnails in separate folder so that I can then delete the ones that I do not want to keep. I have now purchased all 3 of your media handling plugins and encourage you to please keep working on them to perfect the wordpress media management and please consider my feature requests . :)

1) ability to select thumb sizes to delete in bulk and individual media items.

2) ability to regenerate just a single specific image size on its own if needed.

3) ability to automatically add media from ftp uploads directory to media library.

4) correct animated gif resizing

thank you..

Hi again! Thanks for your message. I think the above mentioned plugin for GIFs is still good to go but we have added it to our backlog.

ability to select thumb sizes to delete in bulk and individual media items.

We added this to our backlog.

ability to regenerate just a single specific image size on its own if needed.

This is already possible. Open the regenerate tab and select the image sizes you want to regenerate.

ability to automatically add media from ftp uploads directory to media library.

Please checkout this: https://devowl.io/knowledge-base/i-upload-a-file-via-ftp-but-do-not-see-it-in-the-media-library/
