Support » Plugin: WebLibrarian » Deleting whole collection

  • Dear Mr. Heller,

    I am using your useful plug-in to set up a site for a library, and I am experiencing problems adding .csv bulks.

    After several steps of trial and error, I now have a collection full of duplicates (each with different barcodes); is there a way to delete the whole collection, and start anew?

    thank you for your assistance,

    You will need to manually enter the SQL commands. If you are not confortable with that, you could go to the collection page, set the items per page to a high value (using the Screen Options tab) and then click on the checkbox next to the barcode heading and use the ‘Delete’ bulk action, deleting a screen full at a time.

    There isn’t an *easy* way to delete the whole collection. I figured it was probably too ‘dangerious’ to do that, since *most* of the time nobody would want to (inadvertently) delete a whole collection my mistake.

    Thank you for your fast reply!

    I am unfortunately unfamiliar with SQL commands, and setting higher displayed items per page will still take some time (the maximum number deletable at once is about 200, otherwise I get an error because the url string becomes too large).

    Could uninstalling the plug-in and then reinstalling it help? That is, where is the collection data phisically (and I mean, virtually!) stored? Is it deletable from the server using filezilla?
