Description AnyFile 2005-08-10 12:27:06 UTC
A select all version button would be an useful thing in undelete version page

When undelete a page there are many checkboxes (unselected) to select what
version to undelete.

It often happened that the page was delete to remove just one version (since
there is no other way to delete one version of the page, the only way is to
delete the whole page and then restore all the version except the one you want
to be removed).

To obtain this you have to select manually all the version except the one you
want to remove.

A select all button (which can be also implemented as a client side via
javascript) would make the job easier (just click the select all version button
and deselecte the one you do not want to be restored)

No, a "delete this revision" feature would be a good idea. An "undelete all
revisions except one" feature is a horrible idea which has caused many problems
on the site to date and will continue to do so until the need to do it is removed.
Comment 2 Rob Church 2006-01-06 12:39:04 UTC
Seconded. Let's just have a clean way of deleting one or more revisions. I
suggested a Special:Deleterevisions page on one of the mailing lists...

ABCD changed the subject here from:
"A select all version button would be an useful thing in undelete version page"
"Add a way to delete only one revision"
This is same to the summary of
Bug 3576: Patch to implement rev_deleted (deletion of single article revisions)

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Duping to 3576 because it's the same fundamental issue.
