#21603 new enhancement

Add ability to delete multiple menu items

When working with a menu in the Admin, if you need to delete a lot of entries it's really slow because you have to expand each entry, then click delete, then wait for the refresh to do it all over again. If we had an X next to the down arrow for each menu item, it would be much faster/easier to delete them.

It would be really great if we finally get something like that in the core. If you're having dozen of menus it's really annoying and time consuming to toggle and click remove on every single item.

Few weeks ago I've created a plugin for this purpose, you can take a look at https://wordpress.org/plugins/strasho/

Menu Customizer (being proposed for core merge in 4.3) does this - the add-item panel also reveals a bulk-delete mode (see http://wordpress.org/plugins/menu-customizer).

Still not seeing any progression on this. Has any more thought been given to this in the past 20 months for core?

@aeboi80 a great place to start would be to create a patch to get things moving. Would you like to get the ball rolling by submitting one?
