View Full Version : Image manager doesn't delete orphaned files when "regenerating everything"

Hi,

while playing around with the image manager, I realized that by regenerating everything, orphaned files in /thumbs and /products won't be deleted automatically. Those files can seriously screw up products image functionality so I am wondering if the content of two drawers should be deleted before regenerating them. Or is this behaviour intended?

Automatic deletion of images carries quite a high level of risk ... although I take your point ... perhaps we should extend the 'Orphans' functionality to allow you to delete them through the admin panel?

If you think this is suitable or have other ideas - can you post them as a feature request in the bugtracker so we don't forget to look at it for the next release.

Regards,
