    See librarything power edit. basically, can amend categories and tags for selected posts all at one go, without going through each post individually.

    Here are two plugins I found that might help:

    Maybe, they'll work?

    I didn't try those plugins becuase it's not clear that they work with 2.7.

    However, bulk tag/category editing from WP-Admin > Edit Posts screen would be amazing sure dang useful.

    Hum. 2.7 adds this and I had no idea. We CAN bulk edit tags and categories (among other things) from the Edit Posts screen — without plugins. Duh! (Thanks!)

    Suggestions - As I am on the same hunt for a mass or bulk category editor. I just came across this on a site..

    I have not tested it yet but will address it soon... Thoughts?

    Site I found this post on:

    http://www.quickonlinetips.com/archives/2007/01/batch-categories-wordpress-plugin-bulk-edit-your-categories/

    Update: WP-Cats is another WordPress plugin that aids in mass category management. WP-Cats augments the Manage Posts screen with Ajax controls that allow two-click adding and single-click removing of categories from individual posts.

    What does it do?

    WP-Cats augments the Manage Posts screen with Ajax controls that allow two-click adding and single-click removing of categories from individual posts.

    If a post is filed only as Uncategorized, this category will be removed when any other is added. If you have previously added a category to a post on a page, you can add it to other posts by double-clicking the add-icon.

    If you are blogging on wordpress then you know the large amount of plugins available for different purpose ranging from editing the look to styling your wordpress blog with many more options to tweak and organize easily.We had a talk about bookmarking wp plugin,seo wordpress plugin and smiley comment plugins in the past.Again,here are some of the wordpress plugin which helps in editing the posts pages,categories,slugs and also tags very easily with some enhanced options.I have used most of them and they are installed on my wordpress platform blogote blog.Some plugin needs a little editing/tweaking of themes! So make sure you visit the plugin page and install the plugin by reading those proper instructions.

    I finally had to quit Delicious because they just refused to implement something more simple than that stupid drop down box. I went to Diigo and to be honest, I'm much more happy with Diigo.The only thing Diigo doesn't have, that Delicious does have, is keywords. Keywords are a word that you can use instead of typing in the address or looking it up via tags. For example, my Lifehacker keyword is "lh" without the quotes. I just type lh in my address bar and I'm at Lifehacker..I brought this up as a suggestion to Diigo developers (without having mentioning that Foxmarks and Delicious use them) and they were surprised to hear about it and sounded reluctant. Once I mentioned that both Foxmarks and Delicious use it, then they were a bit more interested. Hopefully that's a good sign that they'll implement it and I can drop Delicious altogther!

    Bulk edit posts is very important idea for me. If we want to add a tag for 20 or more posts, edit post one by one is not a good choice. Where can we find such powerful plugin?
