Feature: Add bulk actions to add/remove tag from topics

(Brian Adams) #1

The new tag plugin is great. Now that I am using it, I would like to combine it with search and bulk actions to manage the tags across many topics.

Use case: Up to now, many of the topics had key phrases in them to indicate that they were special. I’d like to go ahead and add a tag to all of the topics that have that key phrase. Ideally I would

  1. use the search url to find the topics
  2. use the topic selector to select all of the topics for a bulk action
  3. use the bulk action - Add Tag to add a new tag to all selected topics

There is some other urgent work to make tags have watching levels like categories first, but I like this too.

Great idea. Similar bulk actions might be (too big scope?):

  • Close/Archive topics
  • Change category
  • Pin/unpin

Those two already exist (pin doesn’t)

True, but not from the search results :slight_smile:

Huh? What are we talking about here? As the search parameter just reuses the same view as the latest page… so the options should remain the same.

(Michael Downey) #7

Nice, but how do you get to that view from the search field?

You can’t yet. The full page search is slated temporarily for 1.3, so you have to use the query string for now :smile:

This exact feature was requested just now in my community. :slight_smile:

This has been implemented for a while now :slight_smile:
