Description

If you click "select all" in the pages are in order to add them all to the menu, but the list of pages is paginated, only the visible pages are actually added.

The same probably holds for categories as well.

This seems to be standard behavior with "select all"s: only the visible items are selected. See GMail, for example.

  • Keywords ux-feedback added; ui ux removed
  • Summary changed from Adding Pages to Menus: select all doesn't select all to Adding Items to Menus: select all only selects visible items

That said, in a future release we could take a page from GMail's book and add a checkbox to "select all 278 pages" when select all is clicked.

I think that would be unnecessary. If you have so many items that the existing "select all" is too slow, then it's unlikely you're going to be adding them all to a menu (hundreds of items).

And if you're really, truly wanting all of a kind of item, you're probably looking more for something like wp_list_categories(), which will handle future cases and hierarchy automatically.

Point taken. Plus, managing hundreds of menu items might get a tad cumbersome. ;)
