#5044 closed enhancement (fixed)

Old avatars not deleted

Reported by: henrywright Owned by: boonebgorges
Milestone: 1.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Component - Core Keywords: needs-patch


If a member changes their avatar, the old avatar remains in the avatar directory (wp-content/uploads/avatars/). There is no way for the member to reuse the old avatar so it is completely redundant and just takes up space on the server.
