I guess this is a combination request for PHP help and request for a feature. Basically, I goofed and imported a massive blogroll into my default category in the link manager. WP doesn’t allow deletion of the #1 category (which is where I accidentally imported them). So, I created a second category and, since there’s no “Select All” option that would let me do a bulk deletion, spent an hour selecting each link individually then using the “Move” button to transfer them to the second category. I figured, once I did that, I could delete the second category and they’d be gone.
Well, that’s how I thought it would work, at any rate. Instead, it just transferred all of the links back to the default category. In other words, I wasted an hour of my time and still haven’t accomplished anything.
I’m thinking there must be a way I can go through phpMyAdmin and dump all of the links, but since I don’t know diddly squat about PHP (yet), I’m afraid to try figuring it out myself. Any code monkeys out there willing to give me a tip?
(And, WP, would y’all please add in the ability to select multiple links for deletion? Pretty please? Huh?)
