Anyone figure out a way to delete old pictures?????
The ones with the little box can be deleted, but some don't have the box.

Not sure about yours but the only ones that I cannot delete are ones that are in closed threads. Hope this helps.

southpaw is correct.

I had some pictures I could not delete, I noticed that these were all in posts I had made in the Swappin' & Sellin' forum and that all the threads referencing these pictures had been closed. I edited those threads and changed the status to "Open". I could then delete the pictures.

After deleting the pictures the status of the threads can once again be set as "Closed".

How do I edit the thread to open it????
I don't see any of the edit on the bottom.
The threads are closed.

are they in the S&S section?
if so and you started them you should be able to hit the edit button and go to advanced.
from there you can go to the manage attachments and remove the pictures.

let me know what your working on, I should be able to help if that don't do it.

abunaitoo,

If the pictures in question are attached to a thread you originated in the "Swappin & Sellin" forum there is a drop down marked "Administrative". If the thread has been locked, you have the option to "Open Thread". See the screen shot below.


166534


Once the thread has been opened you can delete the pictures attached to that thread.

The locked "Swappin & Sellin" threads are the only threads in which I have had this issue.

It worked in the one's that I started.
Thank you
Is there a way to do it in closed threads I didn't start????

They are in the swapping & selling section.

you can't do it.
but the threads will disappear in a month or so after being moved to the sold section.
