    I can't believe this doesn't have more views. This is a life saver. I won't even go into the details lol…. I'm 31 up

    why does this require a 3rd party plugin?
    should just be part of WordPress
    also I cant seem to get this plugin to actually work constantly with how it handles caching

    Hi,

    I changed an image size in media gallery, and then restored it, but now I can't see the different image sizes options under attachment display settings. How do I get it back? Thanks.

    I just want to replace a YOUTUBE VIDEO on a page. Downloaded the plugin, but still no help. Next suggestion? The other video on our site still auto-plays on a mobile device, but there is blank space on the computer website.

    this is not working if you keep the same name of the file. You have to rename the filename to make it work – which defeats the entire purpose of this plugin and makes it useless!

    Why it doesn’t show for me replace option
