MediaPress User Quicklinks

Enabling Deletion of Orphaned Media:-

The implementation uses WordPress Cron jobs and schedules the cleanup every 15 minutes. We initialize the job when MediaPress is activated to avoid multiple cron job issues. So, if you want this and you have MediaPress Active, you will need to deactivate and reactivate. For new installs, It will work just fine.

Please get a copy of the updated plugin here.

Looking forward to hearing about your experience.
