Delete file from the frontend

I would like that a registered user can delete a file from the frontend with FileMan. Is it possible ?

Hello Frederic, yes, for the user to be able to delete a file he needs to be part of a user group that has delete permissions. You can either change this for the registered user group, or create a new group and move the users that need to manage files in there.

Please note. If you change the default permissions for the registered group to allow them to delete, then all registered users will be able to delete anything in Joomla, including articles. This is therefor not recommended.
