How to delete a folder

Hi,

I have several folders I can't seem to delete, as there is no delete link/button:

Why can't I delete this folder? I am logged in with an admin account.

Piwigo version: it says I am using the latest version when I check for updates
PHP version: 5.6
MySQL version:
Piwigo URL:

Re: How to delete a folder

Perhaps because it is a physical folder, and not a virtual album. Try to remove the directory with an external file manager.

Re: How to delete a folder

Hi Executive,

I have tried this, and the issue remains (the folder /galleries/Verdant/20170906 has been deleted).

What do I try next please?

Thanks,
Steve

you probably need to resincronize if you add or delete new files or folders
Admin => Tools => Synchronize

Re: How to delete a folder

I did do Admin => Tools => Synchronize

but the folders I deleted were still there afterwards.

1) make sure the folders are actually deleted (physically) from server, using a FTP client

2) on Admin => Tools => Synchronize:
- check "directories + files"
- check "display maximal information"

-uncheck "only perform a simulation"  (this is very important)

3) if the folders continue to appear in Piwigo, you can try some maintenance tasks
Admin => Tools => Maintenance
-Update albums' information
-Purge user cache
-Purge compiled templates
