Delete image from server when article expires?

Post by lancert » Mon Mar 16, 2009 9:47 pm

Does anyone know if there is a way to automatically delete an image from the server that is placed in an article when that article expires?

I'm building a site that is going to have tons of articles and an image for each. I'd like to have the server maintain itself and not leave orphaned files when the article is gone.

I've looked at the Joomla "Attachments" extension but it doesn't show the image in content, it only makes a link to download the image.

Any ideas?
