    Uploads

    Hey all,

    Question......is there a way to clear attachments that you've uploaded...??
    I currently have 22 sitting in my profile under 'Attachments' that i'd like to clear out.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Thx
    Thoma

    Once uploaded they become part of the site, so using the attachments manager, members cannot delete them, cause deleting them, deletes them from your threads. Thus making your threads incomprehensible as members will be commenting on photos that no longer exist in the threads.

    But if you issue is more about them displaying in the attachment manager, you can swap to the simple uploader. Go to your settings menu (very top right corner of site), under My Account : General Settings is an option "Enhanced Attachment Uploading", change that to OFF and you get a simplifed uploader without all the previous attachments showing.

    Not sure if this is the right place but I have just tried to upload to the gallery for the first time I accidently uploaded two identical images after receiving an error message following the first attempt. I tried again, got the same message. I then went into the image gallery and saw that the two images were there. I don't think I can delete so am asking a mod to remove one if possible??

    Per Culling of old threads - site maintenance your old attachments will eventually disappear.
