    how do i delete all the images in the gallery? i can only select 10 images at the same time, but i have more than 400 pages with images so that will take some time! if i delete the images trough a FTP application only the images are gone, but links in the media gallery is still there but without the images. isnt there any way that i can view like 100 images at the same time in the media gallery instead of only 10?

    The question was, "how do I delete images". Using FTP will allow mass removal of images from a folder.

    @Saurus: That was not the question prick. Just read better:

    What does that say, dumbass? That's the first line of the question.

    Number two - you are NOT supposed to jump into someone elses post - the Codex is clear on that.

    Number three - if you are seriously looking for help from volunteers - what your mouth.

    Number four - the quote you posted is NOT a question - it's a reference to what he has left after he deletes a picture. Not my problem - I don't use the image gallery - and he didn't ask how to fix that. In NO place did he pose a question "how do I get rid of the remaining links.

    Number five - if you want to be a smart-ass ... learn to read better yourself. And take a class in reading interpretation while you're at it.

    Don't the associated images get removed when a post is deleted?

    If you use the media library you can select all on a page and chose bulk action delete
    Not ideal - but could save some time
    It could be a bit tricky picking the right images?
    - but they are ordered chronologically
    - plus there is a filter by month option too
