Find Posts Using Attachment

Description

Allows to find all posts where a particular attachment (image, video, etc.) is used.

Adds a “Used In” column to the list view in Media Library, as well as to the attachment details modal.

Finds posts that use the image (including any of its intermediate sizes) in post content, or as a featured image. Works with custom post types too.

Inspired by a WP Tavern post on image attachments.

This identified a number of images that were actually still being used - in one case, it even identified our corporate logo. This plugin needs some serious work.

What a great idea, I thought, This is exactly what I need to help me do some housekeeping an get rid of old images that are not being used. Luckily I noticed pretty quickly that it tells you an image in unused when it's clearly attached to a post. What a shame.
