This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

BEA – Media Analytics


If you want to see which media is used and where? This plugin is for you!

By installing this plugin you will index where your media are used, display further informations about how they are used and also warn you about deleting used ones.
Therefore, you will easily delete unused medias.

A table is created for indexing where media are used. This is done when saving contents but could also by activating the plugin or be forced with the wp-cli commands.


For now the supported contents for indexation are post types by focusing on :

  • Post content ( gallery, image, links )
  • Post thumbnail
  • Advanced Custom Fields PRO‘s fields :
    • „content fields“ :
      • File
      • Gallery
      • Image
      • Post object
      • Page link
      • Relationship
      • Textarea
      • Wysiwyg
    • „structuring fields“ which can reuse the above „content fields“
    • ACF Options
  • Image Map Pro

Third party support

This plugin has third party support with following plugins :

  • Content Sync Fusion : the usage counter will now consider synced sites to reveal how many times a media has been used across all synchronized sites.

More features to come

As you can see, some issues are feature requests :
– More fields support (excerpt, post meta, etc)
– More type of support (widget, etc)
– More support (elementor, visual composer, polylang, -wpml-, etc)
– Media expiration
– Media replacement
– More file’s mime types

Next Roadmap

  • 39 : Improve display
  • 33 : Ensure a lot of file’s mime types support

Who ?

Created by Be API, the French WordPress leader agency since 2009. Based in Paris, we are more than 30 people and always hiring some fun and talented guys. So we will be pleased to work with you.

This plugin is only maintained, which means we do not guarantee some free support. Consider reporting an issue and be patient.

To facilitate the process of submitting an issue and quicker answer, we only use Github, so don’t use WP.Org support, it will not be considered.


  • In the single edit view, a bloc has been added to display the number of usages, where and what type.
  • In the media library modal view, when a media is selected, a bloc has been added to display the number of usages.
  • On the media admin library view, an admin column has been added to display the number of usages.
  • On media delete, if it has usages (based on indexed contents), a warning will prompt to confirm the media deletion.


At plugin activation, a single event will be added in order to index your contents. It generally takes 10-15 min to do so.

At plugin deactivation, all data stored by this plugin will be deleted to ensure not to weighing the DB and also for further safe reactivation.


  • WordPress 4.6+
  • Tested up to 4.9.3.
  • PHP 5.6+


  • Download and install using the built-in WordPress plugin installer.
  • Site activate in the „Plugins“ area of the admin.
  • Nothing more, this plugin is ready to use !


Can I use BEA – Media Analytics into a single site ?


This plugin simply plug on the media’s admin area and index all the supported contents for further info display.

Can I use BEA – Media Analytics into a multisite ?


For the indexation of all the supported contents, the blog id is used. So on the media’s admin area of each site, the data is not mixed between sites.

Just from the screenshots and description I would give 4 stars already! But sadly does not work in WP 6.1.1, plugin dies with a fatal PHP error. The plugin description page here on mentions explicitly: To facilitate the process of submitting an issue and quicker answer, we only use Github, so don’t use WP.Org support, it will not be considered. So if you too would like this plugin to get WP 6.x support, go over to their Github project page, specifically the issue #88 entitled „WP 6.0“ and express your interest there (comment, upvote). If enough interest is shown they possibly consider updating it. There are also some advanced features in the issue queue, e.g. show specifically which Gutenberg block type (video, image banner, etc) utilizes a media object. Sounds promising. Have a look!

Cette extension est réellement très simple d’utilisation et surtout, elle est très utile pour faire le ménage dans votre bibliothèque de médias, surtout si vous tenez un site collaboratif ou publiquement ouvert à soumission (annuaires, petites annonces, offres d’emploi …etc…). Bravo & merci
