    Since my first thread has gone completely unanswered, I’ll try again.


    I will describe this as best I can. I hired a small company earlier this year to create my website. The company no longer exists, so I am now having to renovate and update the site with no experience. So far, I think I’m doing ok. I’ve reading a lot and watching videos and asking a shite load questions. I am in Germany and my site has both German and English. It was built originally in German and added English pages. I have only a few plugins, for language I am using Polylang.

    The issue at hand involves photos that appear and I cannot find them to delete them.

    The Media Gallery section on the backend dashboard has roughly 236 photos. No issue access them from any page.

    In renovating a page, I deleted all the old photo type elements – Mosaic, Horizontal, Slider, etc. Now, I add the Gallery element to a page and refresh it, then refresh the website (front end) and photos magically appear. I didn’t add anything. These are just a few random photos from the 236 photos under Media.

    Going back to the backend, I click on the Gallery icon in the page I am working on, a new window opens and the photos are in the far right ‘preview’ pane. I cannot delete them from there. I then click on Load / Edit to the far left of this window and another window open showing all 236 photos.

    To the left of these photos I could ‘theoretically’ click on ‘Edit Gallery’. When I do that, the window changes, there are no photos there, but I could upload photos from my harddrive. Seems to me these magically appearing photos should be there under Edit Gallery. No?

    So, where are the few photos this Gallery element is using? I cannot find them to delete them from the Gallery element! Maddening!

    Also, if I delete the Gallery element and chose another for example, Photo with Hotspots, Preview Slider Mosaic, or Horizontal, the same thing occurs but with different photos from my 236 and I cannot find where to delete these within this element.

    I could, delete all 236 photos and start over, but so much time was taken to scale and edit them properly and I don’t want to waste a day doing that as I paid someone.

    I am hopeful someone has a resolution.

    Best and cheers!

    Simply stated the Media Panels or Elements (not sure what these are called in English) under the Avia Layout is storing random photos and I can find no means to delete them.

    Hey hondo_man,

    I’ve replied to your other thread already. Opening several threads for the same problem won’t get you help faster. It might slow things down in general actually since we have to reply twice. I’ll close this thread for now, please stick to your first thread.

    Best regards,
