Total Sync shows shortcut as not linked

When you use Total Sync, it shows shortcuts as unlinked. Don’t worry about this – a Lightroom ID can only be linked to one attachment in WordPress.

I see a lot of shortcuts, how can I delete them?

The extension only creates links when necessary. This means that a shortcut is created when an image is added to multiple collections. However, if you want to delete it, make sure that the Real Media Library and this extension are active: Navigate to Settings > Media „Reset“ tab and click „Delete WP/LR Shortcuts“.

The combination of WP/LR Sync, Real Media Library and WP/LR Sync Folder (this plugin) is the best ecosystem for Lightroom that I’ve user so far. This plugin, as others developed by MatthiasWeb, also has outstanding support.

don’t want to miss. The user interface is very nice and functionality is perfect, especially the possible connectivity with LR/WP plugin through the plugin wplr-sync-folders and with Justify Image Grid. For Lightroom users a dream team. Very fast support if needed. So highly recommended.
