    Hello Henry Wilson

    I tried to bulk smush and waited some time and it was working, then I left.

    If it gets stuck, it seems there is an error. Would you please enable debug mode and check if there is any error? To enable debug mode please go to wp-config.php and change

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );


    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

    Now try bluk smush and let it stuck. That will create a file called debug.log inside wp-content folder. Open that file, check the very bottom and you will see the latest errors. Please send me those.

    About the error:

    Could not find /xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/html/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/tienda-de-cafe-1-850x425.png

    It happens, when you have a thumbnail size defined on your theme or plugin and you uploaded the image of same size.

    To avoid this, please follow the video:

    Do the same for all the images it shows error and then smush again.

    Let us know how it goes. Have a nice day!
