[Resolved] Delete all categories

  • How can I safely remove all categories? I’m using FeedWordpress and have accidently more than 20000 categories…

    Is there a plugin to achieve this?

  • You can do it pretty quickly without a plugin.

    Under Posts->Categories, under Screen Options set the number of categories to 999 then use the Select and Bulk Delete to delete 999 categories at one time.

    Request-URI Too Large
    The requested URL’s length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.

    But deleting 250 at a time works. Thanks!

    Deleting from php myadmin is way easier
