    Hello @punica

    The plugin as such doesn’t have any restriction on the number of posts that can be moved to a new category, but it will be restricted by the amount of resources that are available in your web server.

    Try to tweak the script timeout setting and the amount of RAM that is available to WordPress.

    Also even if the script timesout, you could try it a couple of times to fully move all the posts.

    I might did not explained it properly sorry, I can move all posts from one category to another. What I need is to assign an additional category to each post not moving from a to b.

    Hello @punica

    Sorry for not fully understanding you. Yes, you can do that.

    Follow these steps.

    – Create a new category
    – Choose the category from which you want to move posts
    – In the right side, choose the new category that you just created.
    – For the next field with the label, “If the post has other categories”, choose the “Don’t remove them” checkbox
    – Click Bulk Move button.

    I am facing a similar problem, where I have to move around 8000 posts from one category to another. The script is timing out immediately.

    I don’t really want to make any changes to the server configuration as I don’t feel comfortable doing it but don’t have a problem having to do an operation using the plugin multiple times.

    Hence, I would like to suggest adding an option to limit the number of posts that are being moved by the plugin. If I had an option like that, I would be happy moving 1000 posts at a time, something that my server seems like it can handle.

    Hello @architchandra

    We are currently working on adding the feature where you can move the posts in batches.

    I will post an update in this thread once we make the release.
