    Hello,
    Is there any way to edit uploaded files on a post?

      Yes, that's what I mean. It's a pretty basic feature; surely users would like to have that option? Is it possible, admin? Thanks for the heads up re: project/tool/wiki page. Ricky

      I also find this frustrating, and wish we would have the option.

      Hm. Interesting. I'll look into this.

      Hi Ginger. Any more on this?

      Hi Ricky,
      Just getting back into a few tickets here. I apologize for the silence.
      To clarify, when you talk about editing attachments, do you mean being able to delete an attachment and upload a new one?
      It would be great to know what type of behaviour you expect, and I can then get a better sense of how to address it.
      A sample of your post where this is needed would also be good to see.

      Hi Ginger,
      Yes, I mean to delete old attachments and upload new attachments. I think the Pd forum is a good example of the functionality that I would like to see: http://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/topic/9397/more-ambisonics-patches-b-format-soundfield-manipulations
      Here's an example of a post on here where, IMHO, it is needed: https://cycling74.com/forums/gen-au-no-gui/
      All the best, Ricky

      Hiya Ricky,
      Thanks for the heads-up. I was wondering about this, because it had been a previous feature for sure. I think it had just been reset in our settings panel from an old update on the site. It should be back now, with a much larger preview image + a display of the image name as a caption.
      I've attached a sample image below as a test as well.

      Hey @Raja,
      The "detach" link removes the attachment from the reply, but the item will still exist on our servers. (It's a Wordpress thing.) "Delete" will actually remove it completely. I can see how the language is confusing. Will see what I can do about this.
      As for the #-of-downloads counter; that's an interesting idea. I'll look into it, too. Thanks for the suggestion.
