User Comment: This would be a very useful feature, particularily if you didn't have to do it page-by-page. My site consists of hundreds of pages, and just as many attachments. I wish there was a way for PmWiki to automagically find orphaned attachments, and delete them automatically accross the entire site (or show a list of those with a check-mark next to the ones you want to delete). Mass administration .. what a concept huh? :-) SL

I dig this, though I feel like this sort of capability should include the addition of the ?action=delete into the Core of PmWiki. I know that it sure doesn't do anything for site security, but an easy way to take care of deletions would do wonders for my fingers' health.

Is Cookbook.Attachtable enough of a fix for this that this could be closed, or should some of this functionality be in the core? —Eemeli Aro June 26, 2009, at 06:37 AM

IMO some features from Cookbook.Attachtable should be in the core: Delete, rename, and especially reference count to find missing and orphaned files OliverBetz July 09, 2009, at 06:03 AM
