Downloads

I use downloads in events to post up entry forms and results in pdf format. They are going to build up a lot without a way to delete old downloads. Is there any plans to do this?

Are you not able to delete downloads?

I can delete them from an event, but they remain in the dropdown list. I presume this means they remain available in the DB somewhere. I would like to remove them from the dropdown list once I dont need to reference them anymore.

Yea... there are 3 tables:

Downloads
DownloadsInEvents
DownloadsInNews

The download remains in the downloads table.

So I would have to manipulate the table to clean up the db? Are there plans to incorporate a facility to do this within the site, along with the millions of other things you have got to do :-)

IDK... maybe I should put that in... it wouldn't be that hard.
