Pro Admin Delete photos in Gallery Back-up folder?

Post by Castellana on July 22nd 2013, 7:30 am

First topic message reminder :

Hello! Hello

My forum has a Gallery where we put photos. Whenever a photo is deleted, it moves to a back-up folder.

I see no need for a backup-folder. Is there one?

If I don't want a backup folder do I have to have one?

If I want to delete certain photos permanently from the forum, what do I do?

Thanks!

I decided to join in this thread because I have the same query of how to delete pictures from the Gallery Back-up Folder.
I logged into servimg.com, the pictures are not stored there to enable deletion of them, I then checked the URL of my avatar and it was thishttp://r24.imgfast.net/users/2417/31/90/50/avatars/1-35.gifI then checked imgfast.net and it brought me to Forumotion.com and this is what it says at the top of the page:

The forum r24.imgfast.net doesn't exist.
Verify the internet address you typed: r24.imgfast.net,
and try again if there is a mistake.
It is possible that the administrator has chosen to delete it.

I find this odd as my avatar was hosted by imgfast apparently.

The gallery back-up folder can be useful if somebody has uploaded an offensive picture as it provides proof of it if someone reports it but we should be be able to delete them permanently to save storage space but what's happening members are being forced to buy credits to buy more storage space.

Is it possible that the coding for the back-up folder wasn't completed? otherwise it seems it's there as a way to force people to buy extra storage space, I also find it strange how Forumotion staff are unaware of the gallery back-up folder, surely this addition to the gallery would have been announced on the home page?

It would be good if someone could take a look at the coding for the back-up folder and add a delete option as wellVery Happy

Sorry about that, I was trying to copy and paste the message on the Forumotion page and it wasn't showing, clearly because the copy and paste font was for some reason white.

Anyway, I hope this problem with the back-up folder can be resolved soonVery Happy

I said before this fastimg thing dose not seem to have anything to do with servimg it is something completely different, But what that is? i have no clue, Like already said fastimg.net dose dose exist so go figure? it is coming up as being under a forumotion forum that no longer exists so has something to do with forumotion. fastimg seems to be what the gallery pics are uploaded to with no way to access it.

I will mark this for pro-admin and see if we can get the godfather to come here and shed some light on the situation. If there is anyway to remove/gain access to the backup folder.

That sums it up. For all the reasons given, I hope we can get to the bottom of this. In general, the Gallery is a great feature that could be a lot better.

Thanks, Kirk, for looking into it so thoroughly.
Thanks to Sanket for helping with the lost password.
Thanks to the FM team. Very Happy

Thanks. The original founder sent me an email and password to log into the servimg account with. It got me into a folder of a few root images, some of which were uploaded by the OF at creation, and some of which were uploaded by me only the other day, from the ACP. These are definitely our images, so I assume I'm in the right place.

This account does not contain the Backup folder from the Gallery and there are no deleted images from the Gallery.

The Trash folder is empty.
