Exercise 6.2 - Manage media - Bulk Operations

In this exercise, you will learn how to use Bulk actions operations.

Manage media - Bulk operations

Let’s learn how to use the Bulk operations functionality to manage Media.

  1. Navigate to the ContentMedia page from the Admin menu

  2. Select the Media entities using the checkboxes to the left of the Thumbnails.

  3. Select Delete media from the Action dropdown.

  4. Click the Apply to selected items button.

  5. You will be directed to a page asking if you are sure you want to delete the items. Confirm the action by clicking the Delete button. This will remove all the selected Media entities from your training site.

Tip: Don’t link or embed files directly by modifying HTML in your pages. Always use GovCMS functionality to add or upload Media. This ensures that links or images stay valid if a file is deleted from your site.

Warning - If you delete media, then those media will go missing from the content that were using them. Be careful when deleting media as this can break the design of those pages.
