How do I do this?
Removing attachments still leaves them on the server. :x

Go to the Settings page, then in the left column, select "Attachments." You'll get a list of every attachment you've uploaded. Tick the check box next to the one(s) you want to delete, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Delete Selected" button. That should remove the file from the database as well as deleting any references to it in existing posts.

As Mid said you can do it very easily...

Yes, that is what I did. The attachments are still there but the checkboxes are now gone and there's no where to tick anything anymore.

Odd. I tried it when I was giving my instructions, just to be sure that I had it right, and it worked flawlessly for me. Try clearing your browser cache, maybe?

The attachments I uploaded above appear in my settings with the checkboxes but you can see that all my other attachments have no checkboxes. They were successfully deleted but all my other attachments still remain with no checkboxes. My cache is cleared automatically everytime the browser closes.

So I've contacted the 'administrator' but no response so far.

Arcana sometimes gets pretty busy and may not have time to look into it for a while. I'm not sure if there's anybody else with enough access to the system to see what's going on.

And it's been nearly a week and nothing's happened.

Sorry about the delay, I'm trying to figure out your problem here...it looks like in your next to last screenshot there some of the attachments are not attached to posts, and therefore there's no checkbox...is that correct? Can you try attaching one of the detached uploads to this thread in a post and see if it makes it selectable again?

If you go to reply to this thread and click the Go Advanced button, then click manage attachments, do the attachments you wish to remove still appear in the asset manager?

If they do, there should be a question mark that appears in the top right of the thumbnail of each one when you hover over it that says asset usage...see if the asset usage lists anything and let me know.

The attachments are still attached to posts (http://www.cartographersguild.com/mapping-challenge-archive/21991-january-2013-challenge-medusa.html) but have no checkboxes.

Yes. It's all there. It's only new uploaded attachments that have checkboxes and can be selected.

The asset usage just lists the forum posts for the attachments, old and new, there's no difference between them.

What happened was, at FIRST the attachments I wanted to delete HAD checkboxes which I ticked and deleted but after it was done, the attachments were still there but without the checkboxes.

At your request, we have deleted all your attachments from the forum.

Sorry you had difficulties doing this yourself.
