What is it?
This WordPress plugin lets you batch edit your posts: assign multiple posts to a category or delete multiple posts from a category in one fell swoop. Version 1.2 and above also support WordPress 2.3′s in-built tagging system, allowing you to tag and un-tag multiple posts at once.
What does it look like?
In this screenshot, I’ve searched for books with the “52-in-52 2007″ tag, and I’m about to add the “Books” tag to some of them.
Batch Categories is compatible with WordPress 2.5+.
If you’re running WordPress 2.3.x, you’ll need Batch Categories 1.3.1 instead:
Simply upload the
batch-categories folder to your
wp-content/plugins folder, activate the plugin in the admin panel, and that’s it.
The administration screen itself is in Manage → Batch Categories.
Back up your database before doing anything rash with this plugin! It’s well-tested, and no known destructive bugs exist, but better safe than sorry.
