Mass site delete issue

Post by jarold » Thu Apr 01, 2021 5:23 am

Hi Nick,

I stupidly imported a file of 65,000 sites in an effort to have MacDive pre-loaded with locations - didn't realise there were that many!

It has slowed the app down something awful - unsuprisingly!

Any quick way to select large numbers of sites to delete? Simply selecting the Country ('New Country') or Location 'New Location') or 'All' & then Edit/Delete Selected does nothing.

I also tried to filter to all the sites & use fn+ right-arrow to get to the end of the list but that just goes to the end & doesn't select them

at the moment I'm holding downarrow for ages & then delete selected but its gonna be a long job!

Help!

Edit > Select All or Cmd + A should select everything.

FYI if you use the cloud sync feature, I would probably do a reset. That's a fair bit of data which will be recorded and need to be applied twice (add then delete), so 130,000 changes that will need to be synced and applied on any other device. Might as well clean it up so you don't have to apply it and it's not using space in the cloud.
