Bulk Delete

    As I was testing how Bulk Delete affects the work of another WordPress plugin (410 for WordPress), I tried to just delete 1 post from a specific category. Unfortunately, Bulk Delete then deleted all the posts in that category.

    yes, not only that, but i have restricted first 350 post to be deleted but all the posts in that category were deleted.

    also, they cannot be permenantly deleted, they just move to trash. this function does not work anymore.

    can you fix these sudar?

    This is really strange. I will look into it right away.

    Are both of you on the latest version of the Plugin?

    I was. I've now uninstalled it though. This is the first time in 7 years of blogging that I needed to delete an entire category and its posts and although that wasn't what I was trying to do when I saw this strange behaviour, it was ultimately what I was going to do so I'm ok with the results. But I always like making bug reports and helping out when I can, especially when the plugin was free.

    I am able to reproduce it and definitely something is wrong.

    I am working on the fix now. You can track the progress here https://github.com/sudar/bulk-delete/issues/44

    @selinaxxx,

    I just released v4.4.2 of the plugin which fixes both the above issues. Try it out and let me know if you still face any issues.

    Works for me. I was able to successfully delete only 1 post from a category that had more than 1 post.
