Deleting Media files from wordpress


Suppose I have used pictures on my blog post and now can i delete same picture from wordpress media library? Will picture will be deleted from my post as well?
Im asking this loading website quickly after deleting media files?


Deleting images from WordPress media will delete from Post, pages, widgets, custom css where ever you used. You should avoid this.

There are some plug-in claims to remove non-attached files. But, still “no”. It will delete accidentally a lots of images and you may regret.

Having lots of images in media is perfectly ok. This doesn’t impact anything except backup size or disk space you need at server.


Thanks @GulshanKumar for helping out.


You’re welcome!
