I am deleting around 4.000 joomla articles...

When I clicked on "Empty Trash" button, I expected to empty ALL trash, not only the listed articles... 😲

Maybe is too difficult, but in my opinion "empty trash" should empty all the trash, not only the displayed elements. 😉

PD: "Better Trash" is maravillous in any case 😁

Better Trash hooks in to the Joomla action to delete the selected items. So it selects all items in the list and then tells Joomla to delete those.
So changing this to also select items not seen in the list will be difficult.
Also, not sure this would be the expected/wanted result in all cases.

So best to just change the number of items in the list (list count) to 'All' or something very high before clicking the 'Empty Trash' button.
