Unattach and Re-attach Media Attachments

Unattach and Re-attach Media Attachments


If a media file is uploaded within the edit screen, it will automatically be attached to the current post being edited. If it is uploaded via the Media Add New SubPanel or Media Library SubPanel it will be unattached, but may become attached to a post when it is inserted into post. The Unattach and Re-attach Media Attachments plugin allows you to unattach and reattach images and other attachments from within the media library page. I find myself needing this plugin whenever a gallery is attached to a page, and the only way to remove a photo from the gallery is the “unattach” from the page.
