Support » Plugin: Name Directory » 2019-03-16 Request option to bulk hide and delete

  • Dear Jeroen,

    I have a request that hopefully will not violate your principles of simplicity, which I admire in your plugin.

    That is, could you add a capability to multi-select directory entries; and then do some bulk actions like delete them?

    As an extension to this idea, I would love to be able to bulk “hide” a bunch of entries.

    My reason is as follows: I envision keeping my directory up to date. Some entries will expire in the future, ie no longer be valid. So from time to time I will need to (bulk) delete or hide them. The reason to hide rather than delete is that way I would have a record of all entries that I ever entered in the directory, but I would have control over which ones are displayed to the end-user.

    Thanks for considering.

    PS In case it’s not clear, I am talking about having the directory administrator be able to multi-select and delete or hide entries, not any other end-user…

    Hey @jaykaybee,

    thank you for your suggestion. It’s clear and a good one. I have already tought of a way to add it in a way that it’s not directly visible (with a toggle bulk option). I am going to see how I can implement this.

    This way you can either way delete, publish or unpublish in bulk. Publish or unpublish is a way of showing/hiding btw, but I think you have already seen it.

    The Published button is already a javascript toggle (so this is just like ticking a checkbox, but with immediate action)

    Thanks again for your suggestion!

    Kind regards,

    Jeroen Peters

    Thanks Jeroen, I need to go back and look at publish/unpublish, I did not register that distinction. Look forward to see what you come up with on this!

    Thanks!
    The published state of a term in the Name Directory indicates whether the term should be visible on the website 🙂

    Great, that is exactly what I need for when I want to hide an entry that is no longer valid, but want to keep track of the fact that it was once in the directory. Perfect.

    Very good to hear! The bulk is on my to-do list
