WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently checked my stats and found lots of 404 errors on images in posts. I first noticed it with my background image but when investigating found many more also.

Here is an example of a link from the media library:


The above shows a preview of the image, but when clicking on it, it says it fails to load.

I have a small suspicion that this may have been caused by the Regen. Thumbnails plugin which I run if I ever add some new custom image sizes.

Has anyone experienced anything similar?
