    Can't delete old attachments

    I used to be able to go to Settings > Attachments and clear out old attachments by deleting them. In particular, I used this as a way of removing old versions of my Privacy Settings Guide so that only the current one was available.

    Now when I go into this, the only attachment with a check box next to it so that I can delete it is the most recent one... which means old versions will still hang round.

    Is it intentional to stop us being able to clear out our cr@p?

    I'm guessing the time limit setting was enabled (maybe during last upgrade?)

    Allow users to delete attachments, even if the post edit time limit has been exceeded
    As I can't delete any attachments, not even last one (which was a week ago). Only ones I have access to are ones I have mod rights on.

    Sorry for the delay getting back to you, this is the first Christmas in a very long time where I have been relatively disconnected (and still will be till the 6th really)
    I will look at the settings but I dont recall disabling it specifically.
    When did you last knowingly do it?

    Definitely last April when I last updated my Facebook Privacy Settings Guide. I'm pretty sure I've been in more recently than that, but couldn't say when.

    PS Well done on getting yourself a well-earned break

    I have switched this setting on for now, I dont know when it would have been enabled to be honest as I dont remember turning it off.

    Ta!

    I can assure you that I was able to do it every time I changed the facebook guide up until the most recent one, so it got 'turned off' sometime between April and December 2012!
