WordPress Trash will have it's premiere in version 2.9. Now you can move every content, comment, post, pages, media and link to trash. It's quite the same function as you know from other online applications or operating systems.
If you like to configure a special date of how long files should be kept in your trash, you can configure it in your wp-config.php.
define( 'EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 10 );
The default settings deletes your content after 30 days. If you don't want to use trash at all, just use the value
Now there is no trash in your admin area available, and also no links to move files to your trash.
