I think I´ve seen this request somewhere but cannot find it. But will there be any such feature in the future?
Batch Unpublish a whole tree would be extremely useful since I've "inherited" a huge website with lots of so called "archived" roots that still are published and still found by the search engine. I do not want to remove them yet AND by some reason ordinary archive routine is disabled (I at least think there is such a thing as archive feature).
Batch publish is very useful when you do new websites or big updates. You cannot handle 100 of documents one by one then.
Thanks for the input, we're currently looking into such a feature since it's one of the more frequently requested ones.
Any update on this feature? Is it now possible to stop publishing multiple pages at once in CMS 5 or 6?
SEO: node, pages, child
It is possible, but you will have to code it yourself. You could create a admin plugin that lets users pick a page in the page tree and then iterate through the children publishing them if not published.
PageDataCollection pdc = DataFactory.Instance.GetDescendants(YourPageReference);
foreach page in pdc:
Should be fairly straightforward.
Thanks for the fast answer! I will try this out.
Hi! Is there a way of unpublishing whole tree as well?
Is there any update to this thread - for instance has the feature been added somewhere to the product that is not obvious? Its something that would be really useful for large sites.
We know that this is a often requested feature and actually planned and partly implemented this in the EPiServer 7 release. Due to time constraints we had to abandon/hide this feature for the release but I hope we can continue developing this support in a near future though nothing is decided at the moment.
What's the status of this feature Linus, any progress?
We have actually done some more research about this lately though nothing has been decided yet but I hope that we can release something in this area later this year.
This would be a really adequate solution in EPiServer CMS 7!
How is that research coming? Our editors are screaming for this feature.
What about this solution:
The feature still has very high priority and the idea is to implement it as a part of a bigger theme that we recently started working on. Still can't tell you any dates but we will publish more information about this as it starts to evolve...
Thats great news.
For any of you that have missed this, we have started to release part of this support through a feature named "Projects". It's still in beta and we are continously adding more functionality to this:
