Mass Edit Post Privacy Level

  1. Inactive


    I've searched around for a mass editing plugin or feature that will allow me to make all my current posts private but I haven't found anything. Does anybody know how to do this?

    I've found a mass editing categories, but there's no current way to make all posts in a certain category private. There's also mass editing of tags, etc. But nothing quite doing what I need.

    This would be a wonderful feature.
    If anyone knows of a plugin or anything to help me I would really appreciate it.

    There is no plugin that I'm aware of that does this, but there is an easy way to make all of your posts private: Export your blog and open the file using some word processing program and do a find replace:

    Find <wp:status>publish</wp:status>

    and replace with <wp:status>private</wp:status>

    Now go back to your blog, delete all your posts, and upload them again. All of your posts will now be private :)

    It's a bit tedious to do, but it works. Good luck!
