    Delete Attachments

      How can I delete a attachment.
      Where did the wiki saved the attachments?

          For now you can't do it automatically (but attachment/page delete will be added soon),

          For now you have to delete it manually from disk. To do it remove completely directory:


          let's say you have attachment "picture.jpg" at page "Main" and you left filedatasource.properties as it was, then you have to delete:


          or under windows


          Note this is if you got wiki from portletswap or downloaded binaries/sources from JBoss Wiki webpage. If you checked out it from our SVN repo directory is:

          /user/local/forge/wiki (/Main-att/picture.jpg-dir)

          I hope this will help,

            Sorry, but I can´t find any path you have mentioned.
            I have done a "find . -name ..." but there is no file.
            ???? Where does wiki write the data?
            Thank for your help.
            Perhaps in the next Version there would be something more clearly.

              I have found the files in root of the filesystem.
              JBoss has never storing files in a directory upper then jboss/server/default.
              The tmp directory for the server ist jboss/server/$JBOSSSERVER/tmp.
              I am glad that I have found it :-)

                You have to create profile in wiki. Only logged in users can be able to delete the attachment from the web page.

                  In the binary beta jboss wiki portlet released on 10/31/05, I am still not able to delete attachments.

                  Is there a new release on the horizon? Should I be brave enough to use the alpha version? - Does it have the ability to delete attachments?
