Does the content on the "What's New Page" consume site storage space? If so, is there an easier was to delete the older items rather than going to the bottom of the list and deleting each one individually? Thank you very much.

I'm pretty sure What's New does not consume storage space. I think storage space is consumed by the content on pages you create, and photos that classmates add to their profiles. Not sure about text that classmates add to their profiles, but that is minimal.

I asked the same question, long ago, that Sam just posed...Is there any way to delete, in batches or in their entirety, the comments classmates leave, rather than starting at the bottom & deleting them...one by (painful) one.Very Happy

There is not a batch delete function.

When you delete a comment from the What's New page doesn't it also delete it from the profile page of the person who received the comment? If so, they might not want their comments removed. It seems that the What's New page is the most misunderstood and confusing page on our sites.

Think of the What's New page as a page that deosn't actually exist. It is an aggregator or updates and data from around the site. The conversations that are taking place on profile will show up, as will birthdays, page updates... basically anything that generates a Notify Me notification also displays on the What's New page.

Thanks, Scott. I knew that but... more to my ?? Should I give up hope that there will ever be one? If not in this life but in the life hereafter?

From what Scott said, I'm guessing there is no impact to a site's memory space. Just like comments and pictures on classmates profile pages don't count against the site memory space. Can you confirm that Scott?

If that's true...There's no need to ever delete anything on The What's New page...

Debbie has a good point. I vaguely remember that - at least in the early days - I deleted something in What's New and was surprised to find that also deleted it from the source.

Scott, I wish that last sentence was true. We'd asked for that when What's New was released, and many of us who still use the Message Forum as a community bulletin board still wish that entries there will be reflected on the What's New page.

From a previous forum topic, here's the answer provided by CC administrator Kyle Erickson as to what's included in file vault storage:

"Any photos uploaded to the home page, In Memory, Custom Pages, Survey pages, announcements, or forums or Gallery Creator will count against your File Vault storage. Any MP3 uploaded to your Playlist Generator will be uploaded to the File Vault (located on the LINK icon) and will count against your File Vault storage. Any PDF, DOC, or other file that is linked to and stored on your website will also be stored in the File Vault and will count against your File Vault storage."

"In general, if you go to IMAGE, File Vault, anything you see there is counting against your total File Vault storage. If you also do LINK, File Vault and see any documents there, they are also counting against your File Vault storage space. You can also see gallery images in a directory structure at the top of the IMAGE File Vault. These are there as a reminder that the Photo Gallery also use File Vault space.

"Images uploaded by classmates to their profiles DO NOT count against the File Vault storage."

To see the entire discussion, at the top of any forum page search for "What files are included in storage capacity?"
