Media Usage

This plugin tracks the real usage of your media and display this statistics in a simple way in the Media Library. This is useful to discover which images (or sized images) aren’t viewed in your WordPress at all.

Media Usage


On WordPress: Media Usage

How it works

In the Media Library, a new column “Usage” is added. In it, all your sized images for a given media are shown in the form of a little square with a letter assigned (T = Thumbnail, M = Medium, etc) and a color.

  • Blue: Has been viewed by at least two visitors
  • Gray: Has been viewed by only one visitor
  • Black: Has never been viewed
  • Red: There is an issue with this image

You can hover on this little square to get more information such as what it is, the number of visits and views, and also when the image was seen for the first and last time.

I recommend you to use WPEngine or SiteGround. They are both excellent hosting services and work perfectly with all my plugins.
