Is there a quicker way to remove photos from the gallery? I can't find a way. The gallery doesn't seem to delete the same way as the content does if you want to delete in bulk.
What is the criteria for deletion that you're using?
"Some" images in an individual album, the entire Album, an entire Category, etc?
Images can be deleted from an individual Album by using the select boxes when viewing the Album itself.
On e.g the Gallery -> Member's Albums -> "Admin's Album" page, each image will have a checkbox in its upper right:
You can select any or all images shown on that page then use the popup at the bottom of the page to delete them all at once.
As well, you can delete an Album, or entire Category, and choose to delete all images within each.
But if that's not what you meant, can you clarify?
Using an account with a mod or admin permission to delete, you can either:
- Select "all rows" to delete which deleted all images on that page.
- Multi select images as mentioned above.
So you can't bulk delete albums? Under members album category. You have to go into each album and delete from there?
I have a bunch of albums from years ago I like to remove.
That's correct. There's no multi select for albums to move / delete.
Actually, the Gallery hasn't been used since 2017. If I uninstall the gallery will it delete all images as well.
I believe so, but send in a support ticket to verify.
If you disable an application, its data will not be removed.
If you uninstall an application, yes all data will be deleted.
I've not checked this although in previous versions it would remove the db entries but not physically unlink (delete) the image files themselves, at least as far as I can recall. If it does remove them that's actually a good thing really as otherwise the filesystem uploads would contain redundant data. :)
