I’m trying to tag all the topics in a category and move them into a more general category. (We have a bunch of musical theater categories that aren’t so active any more.) The “Select All” control only selects the topics that have been loaded in. (For me, that’s the most recent 30.) So I’ve learned to scroll all the way to the bottom of the list and then back to the topic to select every topic:
For a small number of topics, that’s not so bad. but it gets painful when there are hundreds of topics to scroll past on the way down and again on the way up. In an ideal world, the “Select All” button would load in all the topics or somesuch so that I don’t need to scroll through even once.
But barring that, it would helpful to have another “Select All” button at the bottom of the page too. That would save me half of the scrolling time.
By the way, I love some of the little UI touches I’m seeing as I do this. When I got to a new subcategory, the select tool is already on, so I don’t have to press that button. When I go to add tags, the category slug is suggested as a category so I don’t have to type it each time. Once I submit the new tags, a little progress counter tells me how many have been done. Seriously, this is a lot of work for an admin feature. Thanks!
