Deleted images reappearing (6 posts)

    I'm using the nextgen gallery in my blog. I'm having problems when deleting images.

    For example if I upload 5 images then delete them all and upload 1 image, the original 5 images I first uploaded now reappear which is incredibly frustrating as i've no idea what to do to stop this happening.

    If anyone can help it would be most appreciated.

    I'm having this issue too and it seems to be a bug. Have you had any luck fixing this problem?

    I created a gallery of company logos. One of the companies has gone out of business, so I need to delete that logo image. I have deleted it from my media list and image from the gallery, but it is still appearing.

    Can anyone help with this?

    Check the "Delete image files" checkbox under Options > General Options.

    While this option gives the impression that it only deletes image files when removing an entire gallery, this also affects deleting image files within a gallery. Otherwise NGG will find the image you thought was deleted and re-add it to the gallery.

    This worked. Thanks!

    Maybe I'm missing something but I don't really see the logic behind this. At what point would you want all your deleted photos to show up every time you upload a new image? It seems like a bug to me.

    Hi there, I am having this same problem, and with hundreds of files re-adding themselves it's really frustrating. I applied the fix some months ago and it worked. Today I added more photos and once again, several hundred previously deleted photos re-added themselves. The "Delete images" box is still ticked. I'm guessing there has been an update in between last time I added images and now that has caused the problem to recur. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

    Thanks :)
