This snippet demonstrates the use of the SpecialOps patch ( link here )to the django 0.96 admin. Once you have the patch, adding actions like these is simple.

You can use the @admin_action decorator on model and manager methods to expose them inside the admin. For manager methods, the method should accept a list of IDs. For model methods, only self should be required.

from django.contrib.admin.decorators import admin_action

# inside CommentManager in django.contrib.comments.models


    @admin_action( name='Delete selected posts' )
    def multi_delete( self, id_list ):
        res = ""
        for id in id_list:
            obj = self.get( pk=id )
            res += repr( obj )
            obj.delete()
            res += "<br/>\n"
        return "Deleted %s" % res
