    Watched thread deleting!

    I know I queried this some months ago, but I don't think that thread was concluded.

    I would like to know if it is possible to include a button next to the delete checked button that allows for all the check boxes to be selected. I do find it tedious to have to select dozens of check boxes of old links manually to delete them. They seem to build up so quickly to!
    I understand that I can disable the feature in my profile options...but it is very handy to have it available.

    What is the possibility of a button like this?
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Very possible, but I fear just not important enough to make it near to the top of the to-do list at the moment!

    (Have you experimented using the keyboard? Once you have focus on the first one, try use tab and space as a faster way to move and select your way down the list.)

    I do use the keyboard method. It is faster than the mouse...but still tedious! Anyway's...glad to hear its on the list! Look forward to the improvement!

    PS...Hope your to-do list is not a wopr to-do list! Its hard to imagine a list of changes that can further improve a almost perfect site! A real work of <img src=/S/artist.gif border=0 alt=artist width=34 height=29> !

    Re: Watched thread deleting!

    Just in case it occurs to you to try this... At one time I thought that if I turned OFF the watched threads function in my Lounge profile, it might "clear" the list and then I could turn it back on. But alas, it doesn't work that way - the entries stay in the database unless explicitly deleted. I even tried again just now, including a cache flush and a reboot, just to make sure my memory isn't failing (again). The keyboard method seems to be the only viable alternative.
