Bulk Editing of Posts and Categories, Tags, and other Terms

We’ve found two plugins that make editing a batch  of posts and categories a snap!  First, use Term Management Tools by Scribu to turn all those categories into a nice easy to manage hierarchy of main categories, sub-categories, and tags.

Then use Batch Cat by Lenin Lee to add /edit / remove the appropriate terms from the posts in bulk.

I just edited several hundred categories and 1,700 posts in about 30 minutes.

We heart plugin authors!

To install plugins:

  1. go to Plugins -> Add new.
  2. Search for the title.
  3. Match the author against the results.
  4. Install and activate.
  5. Visit the corresponding Tools or Settings page to configure.
