Bulk remove posts from category


Bulk post editing allows you to apply actions on a number of selected WordPress posts instead of doing it manually on each post
which could be time consuming particularly if you have a large amount of posts.

However, default bulk editor allows you just to add Categories to Posts.
This plugin extends default Bulk Editor so you can remove Categories from posts.

The plugin works just with default Post type, Woocommerce products and any other Custom Post Type.


  • Bulk edit posts -> Add to Category.
  • Bulk edit posts -> Remove from Category.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


Does it work with Woocommerce products

Does it work with custom post types

This plugin looks pretty simple but it does exactly what I wanted. Why is this not a part of WordPress itself?! (@MasterNs, have you tried to contribute it?)

It's highly required for an online shop and it would be a built-in feature. Any how it's completely solve the problem and I really appreciated the author's effort. Very simple, very nice!

Worked brillantly for batch of 400 posts to 400 posts. I had Uncategorized category on all my posts after a migration import and I was really anxious to be able to remove the category and let other categories checked on the posts. It's just perfect, it removes the category you check but keep the others. I love you !
