Enable Recycle Bin Functionality On Media Files – Media Trash Button

WordPress allows the admin to move pages, posts, comments, and custom post types to the trash just like the Recycle Bin on Windows. For the media, WordPress can only permanently delete a file from the media library.

Media Trash Button is a WordPress that replaces the Delete Permanently link with a Trash link which allows you to move the selected media file to Trash instead of deleting it permanently.

How to use it:

1. Install and enable the Media Trash Button plugin on the website.

2. Add the following PHP snippets to your wp-config.php file.

define( 'MEDIA_TRASH', true );
/* That's all, stop editing! Happy publishing. */

3. Click the Trash button under the media entry to move the file to the Recycle Bin.
