How to delete albums?

Greetings,

I need to delete an album with one sub-album. The sub-album as empty, I have deleted the photos. My problem is that I nowhere can find a delete album option!? http://piwigo.org/doc/doku.php?id=user_ … edit_album suggests there should be a delete album option, but not in my case.

Most grateful for input on this matter.

Re: How to delete albums?

The "delete" option only appears on virtual albums. Are you maybe using physical albums (i.e., synchronization)? If so, you'll have to delete the physical folder of the album from the file system. Note that once an album is empty, it won't appear in Piwigo anymore.

Thanks for the update. I use physical albums.

When you say delete the physical folder, does that include also the thumbnail folder .../_data/i/galleries/<album>? And does the removal of a physical album folder imply that any info in the database regarding this album is also removed?

I have deleted the physical album folders .../galleries and .../_data/i/galleries, and it surely disappears from the gallery home page. But, in the Control Panel listing of albums it stil remains.

How do remove an album _entirely_ from my piwigo application?

Re: How to delete albums?

After you physically delete everything, run another sync in Piwigo. It will notice the folders are gone and remove the albums in the database.
