Image still linked as attachment to page even though it has been deleted

Written by  on August 12, 2016 

I have been working on an image gallery feature where I grab images which are attached to pages and display them in various places via the get_posts() function. However, I am finding that when I remove images from the page that they have been placed that they still seem to be set as attachments. I’m just wondering if there’s something I’m mis-understanding about attachments or if this is buggy behaviour?

It may be worth me adding that I am getting images as attachments of pages because I need to be able to categorise the images and display them via categories in different places on the site. If I was able to categorise images directly I realise I wouldn’t need to worry about this problem I’m encountering!
