Delete entries and comments PLUGIN

As you know, deleting entries and comments is not possible outside of the Control Panel, by default.
Yet, sometimes there is a need to give some members (or member groups) this feature, without exposing the CP to them. For example, to enable a member to delete their own comments in context (as it’s the case with many social networking sites), or to give them full control over the content they’ve created on a “dashboard-like” page.

This plugin does just that. There are three tags you can use:
* link: to generate a link to a “delete comment” or “delete entry” template
* delete_entry: guess what..
* delete_comment: to delete a comment

User feedback messages are customisable via parameters, and so are behaviours like js alert.
Detailed documentation on the plugin usage function…

You can download the plugin for both EE1 and EE2 here:

Enjoy! (If you do, let us know how you used the plugin here: http://www.milocreative.com/blog/view/expressionengine-free-goody/)

Sounds like a nice little plugin. I haven’t had the chance to try it out yet, but look forward to doing so. I’ll make a post on your site and let you know my thoughts.

Smart idea, could prove very useful in social networking application or sites with a large base of user generated or collaborative content.

Thanks for sharing.

An EE 2 version of the plugin is surely in our to-do list, but not top priority as of yet. I can’t anticipate how long this will take, so in the meanwhile feel free to use the current version as a springboard for an EE2 port.

This is just what I needed, I was using a SAEF to change an entry status to hidden which was a bit messy.

This works a treat, another great plugin for EE.

Watch out, it doesn’t update the comment total for the entry.

Well spotted Lee. It’s not a problem for what I’m using it for right now but surely its an easy fix for Milo. Cheers.

I swapped about 10 emails with him, but it became confusing and in the end he stopped replying.

Oh well!

Maybe someone could improve the code… It doesn’t sound too difficult although I wouldn’t know how to myself.

Hi there,

sorry I had problems posting to this forum thread. EE kept telling me that I have no permission to write a reply, how funny..

@leeaston, which email did you send your questions to? I haven’t personally received any. You could write to matteo [at] milocreative.com

Cheers,
Matteo

Also, thanks for spotting the total comments bug. It’ll be a quick fix.
