    Default Help with deleting images from file upload manager.

    I've tried repeatedly to remove older images from the PM File Upload Manager but cannot find a "delete" function. I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm missing something obvious, but I'll be damned if I can find it. Would someone please be so kind as to show me how this is done?

    Thanks for your help.

    Did you find a way to delete photos? I have some I will never use and would like to clean it up.

    It was my understanding (perhaps misunderstanding) that any uploaded images not put in use in a posting were fairly quickly purged (like hours or a couple of days). Since you generally can't edit PM postings long after the fact, there's no way to remove images from a post you made years ago, so no way to remove images once they have been used (even once).

    i don't think you can actually delete attachments via the asset manager, what you have to do is going to your user settings (settings link next to My Profile, at the top right of your forum) and click on Attachments (My Settings>Misc) and you can delete them from there.
