      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

    I'll be making a simple light and dark theme. VM wants to make an alternative, so I'd say that you can make an alternative as well if you like. All themes should work for mobile as well as desktops, although VM has pointed out that IPS' default skin isn't accomplishing that so well. I'll send you a PM to see about getting you set up.

    As you can see, we finally got the forums upgraded to 4.2.5. Now I can upgrade the server OS and once that's done, I'll set up the SSL certificate. Almost all done!

    We were doing our best to keep you away, VM.

    Cleaning Mods with TESxEdit

    I probably shouldn't post this as it may confuse people, but in fact you CAN clean multiple ESPs in a single session (still one after the other, but without closing and reopening xEdit for each one). You hide all the ESPs loaded which aren't relevant to the current clean, clean the first ESP, then hide it (and any masters not needed for the next one) and unhide the next ESP and its masters, clean it and repeat. When you have a large number of ESPs sharing a single master, this makes life a little easier (such as if you have 10 compatibility patches for a single Unique Landscape, load them all up along with the 10+ conflicting mods, and clean each patch one after the other - no you don't need to do this, I did it for you).
