Drupal node operations

We love the views bulk operations module here at ComputerMinds, and frequently use it to create some lovely administrative interfaces.

However we often find a need for an administrator to be able to perform operations in a quick and easy way on an individual node. While some of the core operations (publish, make sticky etc) can be performed from the edit tab of the node, many other node operations do not offer this facility ("rebuild image thumbnails" for example).

So we have put together a simple module that exposes a form just like the one you get on the node admin page, that will allow you to perform bulk operations on the single node that you are currently viewing.

Drupal 5 only at the moment, it's available from the node_operations_block project page - and a Drupal 6 version that integrates with actions is on it's way ...

It seems like views_attach.module could very easily expose a view that does this without need of a module. Well, an additional module.

Or even without that, you could use a block and the 'node id from URL' argument and have the bulk operations appear in a block...

You should probably enable anonymous contact information so we can say who we are.

[MODERATOR COMMENT] - anonymous contact info is now enabled, we turned it off ages ago before installing Mollom - but hopefully now Mollom should keep the SPAM at bay

I think exposing a view might get quite messy, you would be looking at a node and then have the same node listed in a table underneath it?

You could of course create a block with custom PHP to mimick this module, but then you have a chunk of PHP in your database and no one likes that :)

I quite like this module.

You're listing the node but you don't have to show any fields. Ok you need one field but I'm sure you could put something. Maybe it wouldn't be as elegant, 'twas just an idea.

I did think about this, and was thinking of some form altering to "tick and hide" the entry - but then I figured that the "bulk operations" are actually really useful and it makes sense to be able to access them on an individual node basis, popping it into a small module like this removed the dependance on the views bulk ops module.

Have you seen the Admin:hover module? A simpler solution to the same problem. I don't think it will have all the operations yo want – but it's easily extensible; http://drupal.org/project/admin_hover

Very good I unterstand, Really helped me out in an essay I'm writing.Also I'm using this..

Role settings set which types of users in your site will have permissions to view this particular block. Page specific visibility settings determine on which pages the block will appear. For the page settings the box labeled

Wow - SPAM is getting pretty clever these days. I've left the above in place as I'm quite impressed by it, there is obviously some bot in play that is posting vaguely Drupal related into onto Drupal related discussions.

Obviously, goes without saying that any company that deploys such tactics should probably be avoided - the company in question in the above is infinitylogodesign.com

I'm new at drupal and didn't know about this module! Sound pretty useful! I'm giving it a try but I can't find the place to set permissions, any advice?

I also suggest the http://drupal.org/project/admin_hover . You will get easy control on the site.
