Add Edit to Bulk Actions menu on Categories screen

Reported by: jane Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.0
Component: Quick/Bulk Edit Keywords:
Focuses: ui Cc:


On edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category the only bulk action is Delete, because we never got around to adding Edit. We should add Edit to the bulk actions menu so people can change category parents easily. Has been requested on the Ideas forum a number of times, so am starting a ticket. If there's a technical reason not to add Edit to the bulk actions on this screen, then we should get rid of the menu and just have a Delete button. Adding Edit would be preferable, though, for consistency and usefulness.

How do you expect to do bulk edit? Have text boxes all lined up or something? Doesn't make a lot of sense.

They would probably be columns with option to make children or parent or some such. The UI group will likely mock it up, but since this is targeted for 3.1, not 3.0, no one has started on it yet.

See Q#1 > ??
Would prefer to see bulk editing for users first. Ex.: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/11392
