I want to delete a background image stored somewhere in Graphene cache?

    But I do not know where it is. I no longer store this image in my library, yet it periodically displays when switching from one menu option to the next. I’m concerned about page load time and would like to delete this background image.

    Which files in my theme may be storing the background image? I’m just beginning to learn php, so I haven’t looked that closely at many of the files, just the styles.

    Thank you.

    Delete it via the media gallery.

    Image files have nothing to do with CSS or PHP files, btw. When you upload them, they end up in the uploads folder, and there is a record of them in your database.

    Moved to Support. Please post in the correct section next time.

    I deleted it from the WordPress Media Library. Where is the Media Gallery? Do you have a file name for it in the database?

    That is why it is a puzzle to me. I’ve deleted that from my images library months ago. I may be misunderstanding.

    Thank you.

    Sorry, yes, I meant Media Gallery. Deleting a file from there should delete it from both the upload folder and delete its record in the database. Is it possible that there is more than one copy you’ve uploaded? (It happens, at least to me.)

    If not, the next time you see it, right-click and select “View Background Image” from the contextual menu that appears. (In Firefox; I’m not sure about other browsers.) That will open the image in the browser and then you can see the path to it and its actual filename.

    What do you mean by “switching from one menu option to the next”?

    I meant that it pops up briefly as I navigate through the system, clicking on a menu item sporadically causes it to pop up (perhaps on older pages of the site?). I’ll try the FireFox suggestion as it must be somewhere and may slow down transition time between pages.

    I’ve reviewed all my images and my backgrounds page in the theme, it must be embedded somewhere.

    Thanks for your help.
