Activate and configure the Recycle bin

To enable and activate the Recycle bin module, perform the following:

  1. In the backend, navigate to Administration » Modules & Services.
  2. If the Recycle bin module is not installed, click the Actions link and then click Install.
    For more information, see Activate and deactivate modules.
  3. In the backend, navigate to Administration » Settings » Recycle bin.
  4. To enable or disable the recycle bin, select or deselect Enable Recycle Bin or Disable Recycle Bin radio button, respectively.

    NOTE: Disabling the Recycle bin from the settings page does not disable the module. You can still open the Recycle bin and restore deleted items, but newly deleted items are no longer sent to the recycle bin, instead they are permanently deleted.

  5. To schedule an interval for deletion of the items in the Recycle bin, in the Keep items in the Recycle Bin no longer than... input field, enter the number of days.
  6. Save your changes.
