Is there a way I can sort attachments by type, I have a forum that I'm wanting to open up to public view but it's got a load of .torrent and .nzb files I would want to get shot of first. I thought I would be able to sort attachments by type but unless I'm missing something obvious this isn't possible
There is no option for that. There is only content type, username, and date. You can run a query on the database to fetch attachment records by extension, but that doesn't help you to delete them. They need to be deleted through the Admin CP.
