Bulk Assign Categories to Multiple Posts with Assign Categories Plugin
Assign Categories is a wordpress plugin which allows you to assign one or more Categories to multiple posts with a single click. A few days ago while working on one of my blogs, i deleted a few categories and added some new ones. The default functionality allowed me to edit each post and assign categories. If there are a lot of posts, this task would be too tedious and will take a lot of time. This is where this plugin comes in handy.
Just upload the plugin file to your “Plugin” directory and activate the plugin. To use it, go to ‘ Manage – > Assign Categories’. A page will show the list of available categories along with the blog posts. You can then select the posts along with the categories and click on ‘Assign Categories’ button. Then all your selected posts will get assigned to that selected categories. If you want, you can also preserver your existing categories to which the posts belonged. The plugin also has a search functionality to help you search for posts.
The plugin is very easy to use and very helpful if you want to manage your categories. If you ever face such a problem, do give this a try.
