Any benefit to deleting templates


Well-known member
I have a wasteland of templates on my site that are not accessible by users. Some are interesting designs, that might be useful to reference.

Is there any benefit to deleting the older templates? When installing, upgrading add-ons, is there any detriment by having a significant number of unused templates?

Someone may correct me,

But I believe that having unused templates will only be taking up space in your database (or file system if that option is switched on) and might make template rebuilds take longer than on a stock system.

But I'd say it's all negligible. If you think they might be useful in the future, why not keep them.
