    In the previous version of this forum there was a way to manage attachments. Every user could go in his/her profile and delete old attachments. I tried looking at something similar in the new version but I was not able to find it. Is there a way to do it or is it not featured in this new version?
    If it is not featured, is there a limit to attachments total size?

    I think that's a bug from the new version. Blogs have gotten removed though, is that where it was from?

    Not at all, I am not looking for any attachment in particular. What I want to know is precisely what I asked in my first post:
    1. if there is a way to access and manage attachments (to either remove them or simply list them somewhere);
    2. if there is a limit to attachments size (since I were not able to find it in the current version, but I am 100% sure there is).
    Of course, knowing the current attachments size limit would be nice too. Even better if we know how big can a single attachment be and how much space all our attachments (per single user) combined can take.

    They're around 50MB, I believe. You're right about access, though; it used to be a button and it's nowhere now. We might just have to wait for a mod on this one. :)

    As far as my knowledge about forums goes, I think we might have to wait for an administrator to give us detailed information about this feature. I do not think a moderator will be able to answer something that is strictly related to how the website is build. Otherwise finding an answer to this would have been much easier.

    However, either the maximum size per single attachment or the total attachments size must be less than 40MB. I was unable to upload a gif that was 35MB in total, and my other attachments are quite small so I hardly believe that they reach more than 5MB.

    While you're technically right, Moderators here tend to be pretty knowledgeable on how things work, they just tend to be pretty busy. I don't personally use attachments but it'd be nice to see a solution to it.

    Well, this Mod certainly doesn't know. I think it is buried in the forum software to which we don't have access.
    @Archeia Can you answer this one?

    Unfortunately, the version of the forum software we're using does not have that feature without a plugin. At least to my knowledge.

    The maximum attachment size to upload is 15mb. I do not believe there is a maximum size for users.
