  • Deleting a thread with attachments

    A member of mine deleted a tread with attachments and now cannot re-upload the same pictures. Shouldnt the attachments get delted at the same time as the thread? How can I go and delte these picturs for him?

    Yes it should have. Have him try renaming the file.

      When he did that, VB detected the file as being a duplicate.

        Then it would appear that attachment was never removed. You'll need to manually locate this attachment in the db and remove it.

          I found the pictures he was trying to upload in the attachment manager. When I went to view the thread they were in, that post was deleted by the user. I permanetly deleted the post and could no longer find the pictures. So if you soft delete a post with pictures, you can upload the same pictures again.

            If a user soft deletes a post then the attachments are still in the database. Changing the filename won't get around it as a hash of the filedata is matched.
