Delete images with active storage in rails app?

Hilldamn asked in Rails

I am using this tutorial -> So I followed the Youtube video and it worked perfectly, but I want to add a feature so that the user can to delete the profile if they so choose to.

I will leave a link to all the code I used here ->


In the link to the Medium article that you reference the code from, there is a section included around deleting the images. Deleting associated avatar is as simple as doing: user.avatar.purge.
What exactly seems to be the issue?

Note: a GoRails user had a similar issue that they posted to StackOverflow:


Where do I insert the user.avatar.purge?
