#46208 reviewing enhancement

Improve Menu experience by making it easier to delete multiple menus at once

If possible, please make it easier to delete multiple menus with a one click button (same as the plugin interface).
For example add an extra tab next to "Manage Locations".

  • Right now, we've to select a menu (to edit) then remove it. If you have like 10 menus... then this task simply takes too much time.

The menus are saved all over different tables wp_terms, wp_posts, etc. inside the database. Wouldn't it be better to simple create a seperate db table for menus instead and have all data placed in there (with object cache)?

Hi @mireillesan and thank you for the ticket,

We definitely can improve the menu deletion process but I'm don't think we can safely move Menus to another database table because of backward compatibility.

I'm in favor of keeping this ticket open to see if we can add a bulk edit (it is plugin territory in my opinion, though).

By the way, thanks for the ticket. Moving it to Future release and marking it as needs-patch needs-design.
