Getting a blank white screen

Hi,

When I go into “Set Bulk Post Categories” I get a blank white screen.

I have tried disabling all my plugins but that didn’t help.

Any ideas?

Thx.

David

Good start but…

Needs filter options, to get posts from a certain author, category, tag, month, etc.
And select all to add/remove a category option
