After having being victim of the "ghost image" bug due to the Media Translation plugin, I have made the update and manually deleted all the hundreds of ghost images (see screenshot 1), and thought everything would be ok.

But since then:
1- Some of them constantly re-appear.
2- Apart from that, link to some images sometimes do not work (see screenshot 2)

The database looks full of deleted ghost images, that's a real mess since I got that bug.
I think the database needs to be cleaned up, but I have a lot of images on that site, so that a real problem.

I count on you to help as soon as possible.

Thank you for contacting WPML support forum .

I need to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site in order to be of better help. You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply. The information you will enter is private which means only you and I can see and have access to it.

+ Please make sure that you have a full backup of your website and database. (Please don't ignore this)!
+ It'd be great if you give me an access for a test site where the problem is replicated.

Best Regards.
