#11574 new New feature

Allow extra blank rows for adding new records when using list_editable in admin change list view

Now that we can edit records in bulk in the admin using list_editable, it would be nice to be able to add new items in bulk in the same way. Something like a list_editable_extra field on ModelAdmin that works similarly to the extra field on InlineModelAdmin.

What's seems to be needed:

  • Set the extra parameter to modelformset_factory in ModelAdmin.get_changelist_formset to generate the empty forms.
  • Adapt the result_list template tag in to show the extra forms. This can be done by calling items_for_result with an empty model for each empty form.
  • Adapt paginator and actions area to account for the extra rows. Not quite sure how to do this.

This sounds like a worthy improvement, and it's consistent with how inlines work.
