Just the other day, I ran into a problem. I deleted a number of categories on my blog and since WordPress does not give you the option of reassigning the posts within those categories to another category, all of those posts were reassigned to Uncategorized. The answer to this problem? Batch Categories.
Batch Categories is a WordPress plugin written by Rob Miller that adds some powerful functionality into the default WordPress category editor. With Batch Categories, you can reassign a number of posts to a category, remove a number of posts from a category, edit the tagging structure, and so much more. Batch Categories also includes a number of enhanced post filters to make finding those posts much easier. This is what the plugin back end looks like.
There are two different versions of this plugin. One for WordPress 2.3.3 and one for WordPress 2.5. This is the type of functionality that really makes managing a number of posts easier and I thank Rob for creating this plugin as it solved my issue and I’m sure it will be of use to many of you. No more editing one post at a time!
