Support » Fixing WordPress » Bulk Edit URL error

  • So, I select two posts to bulk edit and add the category “non-fiction” to them both and hit enter.

    My server then gives me a 414 error i.e. the URL is waaay too long.

    You’re telling me. Check this out:

    That is some URL.

    It seems to consist of repeated uses of tags.

    I wonder if this is linked to this error: I converted my categories to tags using the category converter plugin. After I realised that categories were more for me, I converted them back again.

    Any ideas how to get this working properly?
