Adding "approve" at the post list without opening... (3 posts)

    HI All!
    Glad to have my first post after a few years, have never had any problems, love WP

    I have about 500 posts that are pending, I need to approve them, and they don't need editing. Is there an extension or another way to add an "approve" option to each post when they are viewed as a list. This way I don't have to open each one and save. Then go back again. Plus, when you save it would be nice to have your page return to the list afterwards.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas or help with this.

    Click on the select all box, then the dropdown mark Edit. You can mass edit posts that way.

    Hi SSmeredith,

    To bulk approve posts:

    Go to the View all Posts screen (Posts > All Posts).
    Click on Screen Options in the upper right corner.
    Change "Show on screen" to the number of posts you want to list and bulk edit at a time and click "Apply"
    Select all the posts on the screen and select "Edit" from the Bulk Actions dropdown menu and click "Apply"
    Change status to published and click "Update"

    Hope this helps!
