Deleting multiple albums

Hello

Please, can anyone help me?

A third-party app has generated over 500 albums with no photos. Is there a quick way to remove them all. The only way have been able to do it is to go to Administration, Albums, Manage. They are all listed and I can delete them one at a time but I have 548 empty albums.... Dull

Many thanks

Re: Deleting multiple albums

Easiest probably would be to delete them in the database from table piwigo_categories, if they have some prefix or other things in common then even per query. Backup the database before!

P.S.: Note to out-of-context readers: this works only if no images are associated with the categories/albums, otherwise leaves stale associations.
