How To: Access the (BETTER) OLD WordPress Admin (and Media)…

Following on from the previous two media storage (and money) saving tips – I forgot to mention that it’s better to use the OLD admin media – NOT the NEW admin media.

Here are the first three steps to get into it:

I’ve given an explanation on top of each image below – hope it helps.

When you see your media, ensure you select the hatch Dixon as marked.

Then select the image you want to resize:

On the right you will see the dimensions and file size (weight)

Press the Edit Image button indicated

Now double click inside either box and type in the new size you want.

Then, either, use the little arrow (top right) to go to the next image, or, click on the x (top right) which will take you back to Step 4.

At any time, you can click the x to finish – the image will automatically save as resized.

To check, click on the same image and see the result in Step 5 (top right)

  1. Thanks for this, Chris. It’s of great help. I just hope that WordPress doesn’t remove the WP Admin button from our dashboards. Somebody mentioned to me in a comment that they were going to do so in the New Year. 😱
    Please say it’s not true.
