When checking my FTP, I found out that the original uploaded images remain on the server in the folder 'images'. IMHO, this is not desireable, as these files can be up to 2 MB and take up too much space on the server. Does AWPCP keep the original images by default? Is it possible to delete these original images automatically and only keep the resized versions? Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. I believe this is default WordPress behavior, but I'm going to double check that with the developer and get back to you. Thanks for your patience -- he's been out a few days so it will likely be a few days before he gets back to us.

Thanks and will be looking forward to what your developer has to say about it 🙂

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your patience here while we have been working on this issue for you. Here are the developer's comments:

-------------------

We keep the original image and create resized versions, which is default WordPress behavior as well.

Right now there is no easy way to delete the original images automatically or to change the plugin to make it discard the original image for future uploads.

In 4.0 we use the Media Library to store images. It is highly likely there are plugins out there that can remove original images and only keep resized versions. Once 4.0 is released, the customer should be able to solve the problem by using one of those plugins.

-------------------

I hope that helps here!
