I have a WordPress travel blog that I have uploaded quite a lot of images to, and I'd like to extract a list of all of the images I have uploaded that, for some reason or another, aren't actually used in any posts or pages.
Is this possible, and how would I do it?
How I think I got in this mess
Now, I know there's the 'Uploaded to' column in the Media Browser, but my understanding is that if I've uploaded an image while creating a post, and then just deleted the image link while editing the text, the image is still shown as 'Uploaded to' that post in the Media Browser.
Similarly, I have uploaded images using the Media Browser, and then tweaked an existing image link manually in the post, and these images show as 'Unattached' in said Media Browser.
Bonus points.. :o)
Ideally, I'd like an easy way to delete these images from the site. This sounds like a great idea for a plugin but I haven't been able to find one, which makes me wonder if it's actually a feature of WordPress that I don't yet know about!
