Empty and unattached media

Ondrej H. asked 3 years ago


When I import products using External Images Pro with WP All Import, import creates "empty" image files, some unattached, in media. Is there a way to fix this? I would like not to have hundreds of thousands empty files.

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

This was actually added as a feature request and it turned out to actually improve theme compatibility.

I’ve created a Trello card for your feature request here:


What I’ll do is add a toggle to the media page to hide/show the external images in amongs the non-external images.

Please add any further comments directly to the card above if there’s anything else you need for this request.
