Within the next few days I’ll be releasing the very first module from the BlogPig suite of products and the best part is it’s going to be completely FREE!
NukePiG has proved to be an invaluable tool for me whilst creating my BlogPiG farms. In a nutshell it allows you to selectively nuke(delete) all of your posts, pages, tags, categories, links from your blog, leaving you with a nice fresh, clean, empty blog.
It’s not uncommon to make the odd mistake when your’e creating thousands of scheduled content items for your blog, especially in the early days whilst you’re getting the hang of things. One wrong column header in the CSV you import with ImportPiG or a small typo in your seed keyword used by ContentPiG and suddenly your blog has thousands of incorrect posts and maybe even tens of thousands of tags if your’e using TagPiG. Deleting these with the native WordPress interface is a real bind as it only allows you to display 20 items per page, even with the new bulk delete feature of 2.5 you can only delete what you can see listed so it still requires thousands of clicks to empty your pre-populated blog.
Enter Nuke PiG. Simply check the boxes for the content items you want deleted from:
NukePiG is ready to go, but I’m just finishing testing it with the lastest WordPress version and then it will be available for download from here & the WordPress.com plugin directory.
