Bulk delete of older content?

I may be using the wrong key words or maybe I am going against the grain but I want to be able to bulk delete old content in Confluence and I can't find any information on this need. To be more specific I would like to delete old blog posts in the main space we use as the default home for our Intranet implementation of Confluence, but it would also be nice to be able to delete attachments in a Space using a bulk tick box select and delete. I can't find a plugin to fit this description so has anyone found a work-around? I know the basics of the reporter plugin but I am NOT a developer. Thanks

Hi,

It won't help you for blog-post but i'm using it for pages:

- in your main space, create a page names "To Delete"

- move all you pages to delete (attachments will follow) under the "To Delete" page

- create a new space names "Trash"

- move the page "To Delete" to the new space named "Trash". Childrens will follow.

- delete "Trash" space.

Have a nice day,

Laurent

Hello Paul,

I believe that Confluence still lacks such feature:

However on another great news there is a plugin developed already which should be handy to you (if I got your correctly):

Please let me know if this is correct for you.

Cheers,

Guilherme
