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 and Woocommerce products.


  • 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

Thanks, it works as indicates, I think it should be a core function.

Yes. Strange how the default options with WordPress & WooCommerce products does not allow for the removal of posts/products from categories in BULK. This plugin has a small checkbox at the bottom that is a little hard to see, but once checked it will do things in reverse. Definitely worth having in your arsenal. 5 Stars.
