Force Regenerate Thumbnails

Description

Force Regenerate Thumbnails allows you to delete all old images sizes and REALLY regenerate the thumbnails for your uploads.

Regenerate all thumbnails from the Tools admin menu. Regenerate batches of images via the Media Library list mode. Select the images to regenerate and then use the Bulk Actions drop-down menu to Force Regenerate Thumbnails. Use attachment actions to regenerate thumbnails for a single image.

Several filters exist for advanced usage. See more via this gist.

This plugin is amazing and helped me delete thousands of images but I have too many (100k+, Yes I’m very productive) and it always end u failing after processing 80k-90k images. Is there a way for the plugin to start with the very first images uploaded and finish with the most recent ones ? That would be amazing ! Thank you for the plugin and looking forward to your answer, Best

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.
