Description

If you go into "My Publications", there are "Delete" buttons for each published CO.

Because it's never possible to delete a published CO, maybe it's interesting to replace Delete by Unlink?

It should be possible to perform actions on multiple objects (now actions have to be performed one by one) :

  • unlink and delete (publication)
  • delete

same as #2913 and #2952, it is impossible to perform table actions in this specific view.

About the Unlinking idea... you are in fact in a Publication browser, so you are deleting the publication, not the object... you must be in the actual repository to perform a delete of the object... seems logical to me...

any other opinions?

from a programmer's / experienced user's point-of-view you are right.
from a average user's point-of-view we experienced in our training that it's quite confusing

in the repository there is also the possibility to 'unlink' a content object. in accordance with this 'unlink' might be more appropriate to use the same in the course module?

I totally agree with the average users point of view, but when you try to keep a clean line in development, unlinking and deleting a link are two different things. Delete will just remove this one link, while unlinking will remove ALL links to the object.

I think naming the delete method unlink will end up confusing developpers as well as they expect to remove each link instead of this single one... don't know what is best though.
