    Default How does one remove previously uploaded images from this site?

    Some images that have been posted to this sight are now old and irrelevant. What is the procedure to remove them? A "delete" function did not present it's self during an initial investigation.

    TIA

    You don't. Edit is what is required, and that is only available (ever notice the edit button?) for like 24 hours from original posting

    Any further deletions / editing are in the owner's or his staff's purview - and good luck on that

    He was talking about photos, not posts, and I have noticed the same thing. Have a few old ones, they just get in the way, wouldn't mind removing them but see no way to do that.

    Here is a screen shot suggesting the possibility of deleting photos from your album - if that is where they are

    I have not tried this to see if it actually works

    Ah. That would seem to be an advantage of using the "albums" feature. Don't know about CalG but I just add photos from the 'advanced edit' dropdown, they aren't in an album, and I don't see any way to delete those

    I don't see any way to delete those
    Another screen shot for Settings - Attachments

    If you check the open box, go to bottom of page, click on Delete Selected, you get rid of that one - supposedly. As can be seen, this file can get out of hand - like way too many

    Not tried this myself - not sure at all what happens to your post(s) with that image - does it (the image) just disappear?

    Your help is appreciated.
    Removing pics from the posts works fine, it didn't appear to take them out of the home folder however.
    Removing uploaded pics from the attachments /home folder is what I'm after. That panel is getting cluttered.
    . The pics can be selected from the home folder to be placed into any post, but there does not appear to be a "remove from folder /put in trash function.

    If you see a way........

    I did not do but the one - illustrated in Post #7. That file is now gone from the long list illustrated in Post #6 - so I tend to assume it DOES remove them from home or attachment list
