how do I reassign multiple posts from Uncategorized to something else? (4 posts)

    If a "category" is deleted by mistake, and posts previously assigned to it fall-back into the (default) "Uncategorized" category, is there a way to reassign those specific posts into an existing "category" name?

    or do I have to go to Manage, select the post and reassign each one manually? is there an easier way of doing it all in one sweep? currently, I have 300 posts under "Uncategorized" and want each of them reassigned permanently to the category "Life" - is that possible?

    Go into your category management and change the name of "Uncategorized" to "Life"

    What if I want to remove the category "Uncategorized" from all posts ?

    Also, Life was already default...why did it then assign to Uncategorized..?

    i think there's a plugin i just heard about called "batch conversion" - try searching for that in the codex or on google... that might help.
