    Spring Cleaning SilverStripe Link to this post


    I'm using 2.4.7.

    I know this is probably a silly question but I was wondering about something. I have implemented a method that generates images based on info provided. There can be hundreds at a time but they are usually only about 286 bytes. I was wondering whether there iss any way to programmatically spring clean every once in a while since, even though they are small, they will mount up over time. My user will not be able to do this so I was wondering if there was any clever way of doing it for them?

    You could of course just remove them using ftp, then resync... But that would also remove images that are still used somewhere, unless you know exactly which images to target.

    It's not easy to detect if images are used, as they can be related (has_many, has_one) to different dataobjects and/or hard-coded in the Content, so that would take some clever scripting, taking into account how your site is built...
