Bulk administration - posts, comments, etc.
Hate to hail Movable Type / Joomla but their approach to batch editing is an advantage over wordpress.
The ability to select multiple posts / pages / categories via checkboxes and administer them (eg, publish, unpublish, delete, reassign category etc) is indeed a blessing.
It's painful at the moment to individually reassign posts into different categories, or bulk unpublish a group of items.
hear hear. I was really hoping to see some improvements to the Post/Page manager in 2.3. After converting my categories to tags - I'm just screwed.. can't even FILTER by tags now. Jesus.
Anything anyone ? i m losing faith at finding a solution to batch editing POSTS - (not catagories or tags)Its become a nightmare to manage 8 years worth of my posts - Which are a combo of doubled up /unttitled or 18 digit numbered titles-
I'm in the same boat. Five plus years of posts (almost two thousand of them) and I really need to do some cleanup and organization, but there's no tools that would make that possible.
Want this function so badly.
I want this function too. Right now with the new release you can check all the boxes but you can't mass edit them. I'm looking to be able to check my years worth of posts and make them all private.
Agreed agreed! Mass editing of posts would be a gift...
I agree!! Imagine having a few hundred posts and having to individually assign each one to a new category!
Surely there is a need to have the ability to batch asign posts to a category!
oh yes! i have been using joomla long and for some reason took for granted bulk post administration was a de facto standard.
i just _love_ wp power and ease of use but do miss indeed massive post un/publish capabilities. having to go through each post one by one is such a pain!
I'm putting a $50 bounty on this bug. If you are responsible for putting "publish" as an option for the "Bulk Actions" dropdown into the latest wordpress release I will send you $50.
Anybody else want to chip in?
