Bulk remove posts from category


Bulk post editing allows you to apply actions on a number of selected WordPress posts instead of doing it manually on each post
which could be time consuming particularly if you have a large amount of posts.

However, default bulk editor allows you just to add Categories to Posts.
This plugin extends default Bulk Editor so you can remove Categories from posts.

The plugin works with default Post type, Woocommerce products and any other Custom Post Type. Supports multiple taxonomies per post.


  • Bulk edit posts -> Add to Category.
  • Bulk edit posts -> Remove from Category.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress

After creating a child category I wanted to remove the parent category from 30 posts. I finally searched for "how to remove a post category in bulk edit in wordpress" and and lo and behold the second result led me to his plugin. It works perfectly. I'm only sorry I didn't install this on all my client sites years ago. Kudos to the developer for giving us the functionality that really should be included in WordPress core.

Hey thanks for this handy plugin. I probably will just activate as and when needed but I've just used it to save me some time removing a bunch of woocommerce products from a category. I still can't believe this functionality doesn't exist in WP core tbh. Thanks

We've been using this plugin for 6mo+, and it works with no problems for us. A lot of our products get imported through our inventory management software, which doesn't have a way to send the product category, so all products get categorized once they're imported to our Woo site. It's really handy to be able to categorize several hundred products, then remove all of them from the default category at once with this plugin. Thank you for creating and maintaining this!

This plugin looks pretty simple but it does exactly what I wanted. Why is this not a part of WordPress itself?! (@MasterNs, have you tried to contribute it?)
