  • Broken attachments

    Several years ago I lost post attachments while moving my forum to another server. I beleve that broken images hurt my forum raiting in search engiines and would like to delete them from posts. Is there a way to get a list of lost attachments or posts with broken attachments in ACP or phpMyAdmin?
    Thanks in advance.

    There's no supported way of finding missing attachments but if it had to do with a server move it seems to reason all the broken attachments will be before a certain date.

    If you go to Admin CP -> Attachments -> Search -> Find Oldest Attachments you can see the date each attachment was uploaded and delete attachments a page at a time. This might take a long time for sites with thousands of attachments, it isn't ideal, but the best I can suggest without editing the database directly which would be unsupported and generally not safe.
