Remove 'Delete' Option in CM Editing Page

Looking for advice here.

I am accumulating a large quantity of orphaned uploads when users delete images from their gallery. This obviously consumes unnecessary disk space over a period of time, and manually deleting dozens and dozens of files one by one is time consuming.

If the 'Delete Fully' option removes a file from the server entirely, can the 'Delete' option be commented out so the user has only the 'Delete Fully' option to select? See image -

If someone knows which file and line number generates the 'Delete' radio button option, I would like to remove it, this is presuming the 'Delete fully' option will take an image file off the server when the user selects it.

Alternately, a mechanism by which orphaned uploads can be deleted en mass rather than one at a time (I'm not aware of such a facility though) would work great.

Thanks in advance for any advice or info on this.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
