#6541 closed enhancement (fixed)

Shift-click to select a range of checkboxes

Description

Everyone loves how you can click a checkbox in gmail and then shift click another checkbox farther down the line to select all the checkboxes in between.

We have the power to do that in WordPress too.

Attached:

  1. Naively checks (or unchecks) all checkboxes between your last click and a shift click.
  2. Gets rid of some JS functions that are never used in core.
  3. checkAll maintains its (strange?) behavior of toggling each individual checkbox rather than checking or unchecking all checkboxes.
  4. Gets rid of some inline JS.

Caveat: The JS is not very generic. It's written to work with the markup used in WP.

This broke some time ago. Patch restores the functionality using the jQuery shiftcheckbox plugin.
