This package is auto-updated.

This Contao extension overrides the default behaviour when deleting an image in the Contao back end file manager. When deleting an image, users will be promted with a list of preview images that match the current file name.

This allows to safely delete an image including it's preview, e.g. if necessary for legal reasons.

Attention: be aware that the new dialog will only appear for image files. The distinction is pretty simple: if you click the delete button, a regular file will show the known dialog if you really want to delete the file. For image files, this popup won't appear but the user will be redirected to the safe-delete form.
