Media Trash

Add a trash can to the media to prevent accidental deletion.

Plugin Module Overview - Media Trash

With our Media Trashcan feature, deleting assets from the Media Library is more forgiving. Rather than permanently removing items upon clicking the delete button, this handy tool performs a soft delete, moving the assets to a Media Trashcan. From there, you can review the items and decide whether to delete them permanently, providing an extra layer of protection against accidental deletions.


Step 1 – Setup:

Login to your website

Ensure WP Extended / WP Extended Pro is installed and activated

Navigate to the WP Extended menu item

Locate the Media Trash Module

Switch the module on


Step 2 – How to use:

Access the Media section from the admin navigation menu

Click on an asset, you will notice a new option “Move to Bin/Trash”

Upon clicking the delete button, the asset will be moved to the Trash Can, which can be conveniently accessed by selecting the “Bin/Trash” option from the dropdown menu.

From here, you can see all of your assets ready to either be restored, or deleted permanently
