Really removes unused image sizes

By LLeanbe (engjoakim) on April 27, 2023

A very useful plugin which really regenerates all thumbnails and removes the old unnecessary image sizes. Thank you very much!

Powerful, handle with care

It is MUCH more aggressive than the other thumbnails' regeneration plugins. I can see a great use case if you want to free up hosting storage, that's why I give 5 stars. Anyway, be careful because there are chance to have missing images on frontend depending on several factors. As dev says in the dashboard, take a backup before proceeding.

Really removes unused thumbnails

As indicated in the title: actually removes unused thumbnails. This is one of the rarest functions in this field. I recommend this plugin!

Great! everything works, but the previews in the library remain the same.

Works perfectly fine with WP 6.0.2

I rarely use plugins that haven't updated for years. But this plugin not only still works perfectly fine, it's even better than many newer products. I've just tried the plugin by Shortpixel, and it simply did not do the job. It is very likely a setting that was wrong. But common, I just wanted to regenerate all thumbnails after changing the thumbnail size. I don't want to read the documentation for that. "Force Regenerate Thumbnails" is still the winner for me. It's a pitty that it hasn't been updated for so long.

Thank you :)

worked like a charm

By Jayanta (jkmwp) on July 19, 2021

At first I was a bit cautious because the plugin has not been updated in years. So I tested in a staging site first and it worked like a charm. Used it on the production too without any error. It's a great plugin. Does what it is supposed to do.
