Deleting a file from your website

DELETING a FILE
It is good practice to take this in two steps, starting with an "Are you sure?" type of warning before continuing to the actual delete code.

[deletefile path]
Putting [deletefile file=fred] in your template immediately deletes the file called "fred" in the same folder as the template. Paths are relative to the template, so "somefolder/fred" deletes the file down a level from the template inside a folder called "somefolder," while "../fred" deletes the file in the folder one level up from the template.

This operation is undoable!
