Many of our "assets" file names are non specific and, because many tems were "inherited" from previous site managers, are now possibly redundant.
I would like to check:
a) the file content of each
b) what 'page' links to each asset.
Without selecting each in turn, then checking the Index entry (link) of each and then cross-checking this with likely pages that might use that asset.
Does anyone know a simpler way to undertake this exercise?
Failing that, if I could just create a list of (all the names) in the assets and/or the Index for each it would save a massive amount of time!.
Any ideas how either of those lists might be acheived?
Can I just roll around on the floor laughing. OK done.
Simplest method is to back the site up using Httrack, this will down load a complete copy of your site. Look in the assets folder for all the stuff.
How do you get rid of old rubbish?
Gradually by hand - its painful.
