I need to add some pictures to a thread. I do not have enough space left on dbstalk to do it. These pics are on my iphone (taken with iphone). I could not find a way to manage attachments on the dbstalk web app.

Now I moved over to my laptop. I still cannot find where I can delete old attachments. I can view them and there certainly are some real old screen shots I've posted over the course of the last few months... but I would like to clean them out.

I know I could use an image hosting provider, but when replying to a thread from an iphone it is so much easier to just add the images from the camera roll rather than go to multiple apps. If on a PC yes you could have multiple windows side by side and cut and paste IMG links.

Thanks for the help!

Go to UserCP tab at the top of the screen, scroll down and look on the left part of the screen toward the bottom - Attachments. On the right side of each attachment there is a check box, at the bottom of the screen there a box to delete the checked boxes.

Ok I see there are no check boxes in the right most column. Is that an issue with Safari? Well I will try some other browsers and report back

Cj, mine is like that but there are NO checkboxes at all for any.

Attachments range from 10/1/11 through 11/09/10.

I tried IE9, Firefox 7, Chrome, and Safari

Yeah def. a bug in this site.

I ended up making an imageshack account. I can upload straight from my iphone camera. The only thing is the imageshack iphone app does not seem to give me the URL to the image.

So it's a multi-step process.
1. Get the image onto imageshack using the iphone application.
2. Move over to a Computer, log into imageshack and generate the forum code for posting.
3. Paste said code into a message here on DBSTalk.

I would of liked an easier solution but I don't know how to get this resolved. I will be forever taking over 9 MB of storage on here with no way to delete old stuff.

Are you guys running any kind of script or ad or popup blockers?

I tried, and I see checkboxes next to all of my attachments, and I have some as old as 2007 and as new as 2011 available to be deleted.

I remember having some issues a year or so back with the chat section on this site but I had to unblock some things that my browser was restricting in order for things to function right.

Not that I'm aware of. I didn't install any at least. I tried all of those browsers on my desktop PC. Now I am on my laptop PC and at least with Google Chrome, the last column does not include a checkbox.

Here is my browser information:

I just checked mine in Firefox, and have the check boxes on the far right. Are you sure you dont have a scroll bar at the bottom, and they are just being cut off the screen?

here is a screen shot from firefox, notice items checked on far right are only checkable till 2009 next attachment is 2007 and the check box is not there. The screen is fully scrolled over as you can see the check boxes in same column.

I just noticed that all the attachments I am not able to remove are in threads that are locked. Could that be the reason I am not able to remove them?

Hmm me too.... well that's a major bug because the type of participation I do here sometimes involves threads that have an opportunity to be replaced with new ones every week (therefore the old ones get locked).

The issue is that those attachments are in locked threads.

Cypherx: I have cleaned out your attachments so you should be good to go. I would recommend deleting your attachments before the threads are locked so you don't run into this problem again. If you do, contact one of the DirecTV mods and they will take care of it.

cj9788: I have deleted a few of your very old attachments.

speaking of attachments, why can't you upload the same attachment twice?

I was going to upload an attachment of my set-up earlier this week because I needed some help troubleshooting an issue. It wouldn't let me, because I had uploaded that same attachment to a post several months ago.

So, I had to go to that thread and delete the attachment (which makes the prior post a little weird now if anyone resurrects it) in order to upload it again.

Why does it do that? I would think there'd be lots of times when a diagram or such would need to be uploaded by the same person on more than one occasion.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Its to keep the attachment server from having duplicates. If you need to re-use an attachment, simply link to it.

Sometimes the attachments are posted in parts of the forum that not everyone has access to.

Couldn't you just give the attachment you want to reuse a different name and then attach the file with the new name.
