Remove Trash Plugin

A simple plugin for 'emptying' the Trash web.

NB Currently this plugin only works on systems which use Unix-style file separators (i.e. '/').

This plugin provides the REMOVETRASH macro, which provides a button to 'empty' the Trash web.

You need to be a member of AdminGroup to be able to perform the deletion.

Notes: This plugin only provides the simplest functionality to empty the Trash. It's has not been maitained from 2012, thus buggy. For a more updated and sophisticated plugin, see TrashPlugin.


The root of your Foswiki installation must be specified in $Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{RemoveTrashPlugin}{FoswikiRoot}; by default it is set to '/var/www/foswiki'.
