Description Jamie Hari 2008-03-24 14:26:24 UTC
Akin to:

Bug 9626 - Moving pages should optionally move their subpages as well
Bug 12908 - Option to protect all subpages when protecting the page

This bug is to allow for a similar option, but for page deletions.

This would be *very* handy for the Incubator, because we work with prefixes (which form subpages). Currently pages are deleted per bot, but as not everyone has a bot, it would be very good to have this in-wiki.
Comment 2 MZMcBride 2009-02-04 09:18:03 UTC
This is probably a fine feature to have, but the problem is one of reversibility. Nearly all actions in MediaWiki are designed to be easily reversible. So you'd have to figure out a way to get Special:Undelete to be able to undelete all subpages. And that would be pretty tricky.
