I am the webmaster for a popular local blog that is up in the orange of its disk space usage. I thought a way to minimize the usage would be to remove all links from images in the blog and manually remove all the other versions of the images that Wordpress creates automatically.

When I did it, I checked each post, and the photo was there. When I check the post from the drop-own archive widget on the sidebar, there are no photos. Is that the way it is supposed to work?? Do the widgets leave out images?

thanks!

Hi Juggledad.

Atahualpa 3.4.9
Wordpress 3.0.4
url www.richardhughes.ca

Archives widget that comes with wordpress.


On another topic, I still have not managed to resolve the problem for my customers who use atahualpa and have lightbox plus installed. They are unable to upload photos, it hangs at 60%. I have no problem however. It was suggested that they reinstall flash as per this blog post
http://www.lancelhoff.com/io-error-u...ress/#more-663
But still no luck. In fact it crashed Firefox and Chrome. I am at my wits end and want to know if you or someone you can recommend can resolve this for me for pay. My customers, while patient, are becoming annoyed as I have been trying to fix it for them for a month now.

Did the archives show the images before you'd changes?

Why not just buy more web space if you have used so much?

Good morning, Juggledad,

re: purchasing more space

Well, he is pushing 100 MB. I was able to drop it down 5MB just by going to 25 of his posts and manually deleting the versions of the photos that are autogenerated by Wordpress when you upload a photo. Thumbnail, small, medium, large, etc.

I don't suppose there is a way to turn that off, if he sizes his images exactly and does not link to the larger image?

Your advice is always helpful, by the way. Hoping you can recommend a person to help with the request above. If not, I understand.

this was resolved by using a plugin called "Upload from Server." You create a folder in your root file, perhaps "images" and then identify that folder in the Upload from Server settings. When you go to add a photo to your blog, using ftp, you pre-size your image to what you want, you FTP it to http://yourdomain.com/images. Then when you click on the insert image icon above the content field, one of the selections is Upload from Server. And voila, your image is there.

Not 6 versions of the image, but ONE
