#15223 closed Bug (wontfix)

The comments app has 2 similar menu items in action

Reported by: sergeybe@… Owned by: aashu_dwivedi
Component: contrib.comments Version: 1.3-beta
Severity: Normal Keywords: actions
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


There are two menu items:

  • Delete selected items
  • Remove selected items

I guess one from admin app and one from comments app.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

I agree that this is confusing (I had to explain the difference between "Delete" and "Remove" to several clients before). "Remove" should perhaps be changed to "De-activate", or "Un-publish" or something along those lines.

That was me :)

  • milestone changed from 1.3 to 1.4

Not a bug though, so can't be done for 1.3.

No doubt originally named after the is_removed field on the Comment model, which seems perfectly reasonable until you see it beside the site-wide delete action. Should be a one-line patch. I think "Unpublish selected" sounds appropriate? (describes the effect better than "deactivate" or "hide").

  • milestone changed from 1.4 to 1.3

Julien, I disagree, this is a bug, even more a one-line translatable literal change. Can be worked on before 1.3 RC.

@Ramiro Functionally things are consistent but I agree that this can be seen as a usability bug, and I'm absolutely in favour of fixing this ASAP. The patch may not be as trivial as modifying one string though. The term "removed" is also used in the comment's detail page and in the changelist's table and filters. If we change the term only in some places then things may potentially get even more confusing for the user.

This is perhaps bikeshedding, but "unpublish/is unpublished" seems pretty clumsy language to me. "hide/is hidden" would be a lot better IMO.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

django.contrib.comments has been deprecated and is no longer supported, so I'm closing this ticket. We're encouraging users to transition to a custom solution, or to a hosted solution like Disqus.

The code itself has moved to; if you want to keep using it, you could move this bug over there.
