This is Great, thank you very much.

It would also be nice to have a global to mass delete in a category.

binkie,

We do not plan to add mass delete in a category to the global editor because you can simply delete the entire category. category

bigtallmensclothing,

Sure you can do this on the attributes too. Just use replace text in description. However make sure the text to be replaces is contained only in the attribute. The action will replace it everywhere, not only in the attribute.

However you can easily use replacement rules like:

Text to replace*:
[!brand:sony!]

Text replacement:
[!brand:panasonic!]

Thanks for your reply. What I really meant was it would be nice to be able to delete all the items that I had in my ebay category.

I had imported but a month or so later I just didn't want them on Ecrater and couldn't delete the ebay category so I had to delete all individually. Very time consuming.

Hi binkie,

The locking of the "my ebay" category is done on purpose. Bulk editing is not allowed. Once you remove all ebay items you will not be able to use the bulk lister/ebay importer again.

I don't get it.

I select the category ftom the drop down menu Apply to*
I select replace tect in title from the drop down menu next to Action

There is no place for me to type anything.
I found no instructions any where

I click on ADD and get
" Please fill out the required fields "

where do I fill out any required fields?
I don't see any blocks or any place to type


I am using IE8 and Windows 7


What does supports operators mean? The symbols posted above ... what are they? What are we suppose to do with them?

BT we should report this, it works in Chrome and I just tried what you said in IE 8 with Windows 7 and got the same thing you did. No boxes.

In Chrome you get: two boxes for typing, one for Text to replace and one for the text to replace it with.

LKJ

It appears that none are showing for any of the actions in IE8

The IE bug should be fixed now. I have only IE6 but most probably the fix will work on any IE6+ version.

Please test and report any issues here.
