How do I remove two photos from a two year old "for sale" post which are stored in my "attachments"? There is no radio button on the right to select, so I cannot delete these items. I appreciate the forums, and want to consume as little storage space as possible, but I cannot get rid of these old photos.

Try going into your USER CP, on the left at the bottom, Attachments, I think you can delete them from in there.

PM a moderator with a URL and they'll remove them. There's no other way since posts are no longer editable after the timed period.
I just deleted 4 attachments, one photo, and three zip files from my user cp, attachments menu. Are you saying they are still there even though I deleted them?

No, Wayne just forgot that there was an entire "attachments" management component for the forums available to all users. Sometimes when looking at the forums from with a moderator view (which is different than a users) you forget what is available to everyone as opposed to what is available to us.

Not better, just the same. I had to go and check on it myself before I posted that last comment. :lol:
