Bulk remove posts from category

Description

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.

This plugin is perfect if you have hundreds of post that you have imported via JSON or CSV file, and they are all included in a category that you don’t want to (such as uncategorized). You can select the bulk ==> edit ==> Remove from category. Very simple but super functional.

It works perfectly and saves a lot of time, thank you! Like many others I think this feature should be a part of the wordpress core in the future!

No idea why the feature isn’t part of the WP core – does exactly what its supposed to do. Moved 80 imported blogs from “uncategorized” to where I needed them to go in a few seconds. Awesome plugin, thank you!
