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 with default Post type, Woocommerce products and any other Custom Post Type. Supports multiple taxonomies per post.


  • 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 does exactly nothing. If you want to remove Uncategorized: 1. Assign a new category to products 2. Create a new default cateogory "Uncategorized new" 3. Delete old "Uncategorized" 4. Celebrate

It does not work for me, while it used to work 1 year before. I am running WP5.8.1, and the plugin's ver. is 3.2.1 I have tried in 2 different servers with mirrored wp installations. I have disabled all other plugins but with no avail... The Console logs the errorThrown in your wpbulkremove.js: Object { readyState: 0, getResponseHeader: getResponseHeader(e), getAllResponseHeaders: getAllResponseHeaders(), setRequestHeader: setRequestHeader(e, t), overrideMimeType: overrideMimeType(e), statusCode: statusCode(e), abort: abort(e), state: state(), always: always(), catch: catch(e), … } wpbulkremove.js:80:15 AND the debugger points to that: wp-admin/load-scripts.php?c=0&load%5Bchunk_0%5D=jquery-core,jquery-migrate,utils,wp-codemirror,underscore&ver=5.8.1 Also, I do not know if that helps, but if I log the var taxname, I get post_category[] and also cat_id_add does not exist. I am sorry for all the edits!!!

Sadly the plugin does not work. I hit apply and the category "Uncategorized" still remains on my selected products. Using WooCommerce version 5.7.1
