Mass delete of products

After installing magento I needed to delete the products that came with the install. As far as I could see, I had to click each one then click delete. Additionally because of the way the links were made, I couldn’t even open the links in a new window :( I had a quick look at trying to implement the mass delete, but without docs I was lost..

So mass delete would be great.

Also, when installing, it should give you an option to not install the sample data.

I concur, It would be nice to have those little check boxes next to all of the products and a master delete button.

As a temporary solution, there is a greasemonkey script to mass delete products.
Check this thread http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/229/

We’ll have such functionality in future versions.

Has this been added in 1.4?

I hope so, thanks

I’m a first-time Magento user, and after installing the sample data, I have to delete over 100 products one by one.  That’s like over 400 clicks and pageloads. :( :( :(

Use the tools already built into the Manage Products grid. Checkboxes or “Select All/Visible"> Actions > Delete

No need to do it one by one

Ahh, I missed that, especially after reading this thread and seeing no confirmation the functionality existed.  Thanks!

A more efficient way to delete many products is using Mass Product Actions module.

Certianly talks the talk, and goes way beyond mass deleting products. Will definitely keep this one noted for future ref.
