Thread: Attachment, many unused pictures

    Default Attachment, many unused pictures

    Hi, perhaps this is the wrong place sorry. If I like to ad an attachment (pictures ) to my post, there are a box with lot of pictures I added in the past and I don't use them anymore. Is it possible and if how to get rid of them. It will bring more clearness. I found no way to delete them by myself.
    Thanks in advance.

    Where is this box with a lot of pictures? Under Settings/Attachments?

    Here. It says that 'attached thumbnails will be deleted is not used within an hour' but some remain for days as you can see.

    Delete all saved thumbnails? Try: 'Select All' and then just 'X' out without uploading or attaching. They will be gone in an hour? Might work.

    I would be careful about deleting those.

    I suspect that if you delete those they will disappear from the posts they now show up in.

    Get an admin like Rick to confirm this before you make an irreparable mistake.

    Yes, if you delete them in the "manage attachments" box they will disappear from all the posts they are currently in.

    Thank you for all the answers. OK I will let them where they are.
    I was disturbed by the phrase in the manage attachments: 'Uploads not utilized within one hour will be deleted' Now I understand the meaning. All the pictures in the box were uploaded and so they are still there.

    BTW mrzippy shows me where I could them delete if I would do so.
