[resolved] Photo uploading issues (3 posts)

    (1) When the listing owner clicks on the remove link to upload a new photo, the previous photo(s) remain in the server and are not actually removed or deleted. This could translate into a huge waste of server disk space if the directory has enough users uploading and replacing photos.

    (2) Also, all the profile photos are publicly accessible when one enters the url to the folder containing them.

    I realise that this is not a real problem, since I can always upload a blank index.html file in this folder to hide them from public view.

    Hi awwad,

    The directory you mention above is not a directory controlled by BD--it's one controlled by DirectoryPress. You may wish to alert them about this problem.

    For the first problem, can you tell me where you see the photo being left behind? A specific listing and some image links would help. If you prefer to do this in private, please contact me directly: http://businessdirectoryplugin.com/contact/

    strangely enough, the thumbs keep uploading into the directorypress folder. There might be some sort of file/database corruption from the previous installation of other plugins. I'll be moving my site to a new server next week and will do a fresh installation of wordpress and the bd plugin. I'll let you know if that resolves this issue. Thank you.
