A solution to "too many checkboxes"

By Joel Stein on May 30, 2011

Drupal’s permission screen has loads of checkboxes. And if you’ve got lots of roles and you’re using something like Forum Access, you’ll find yourself clicking ‘till the cows come home. Fortunately, there’s an easy solution—CheckBoxer, a Google Chrome Extension.

From CheckBoxer’s description:

CheckBoxer will select (or unselect) a group of check boxes automatically when you draw a selection rectangle around them. It will, in effect, toggle the effected checkboxes on or off.

It’s a little unintuitive at first, but once you figure it out, it’s a must-have for configuring Drupal sites.

Just put your mouse in the first checkbox, and click and drag a square around the checkboxes you want to toggle. CheckBoxer will do the rest.

Drupal 7 checkboxes

Huge time (and finger) saver.
