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.

Since the default category ("uncategorized" in my case) cannot be bulk removed from legacy posts, I tried this plugin. It removed the posts from "uncategorized" exactly as promised without affecting other selected categories. Helpful and time saving, thanks!

Needed a way to remove "Uncategorized" from hundreds of Products and this helped to that quickly! Why doesn't Wordpress do this by default, why do we need a plugin for every little thing!! Thank you for putting this out there! It is smart people like you that make the world go around! 🙂

Little plugins like this are what makes the plugin repository so good. Just does what it is meant to do without the fluff.

This plugin does exactly nothing. If you want to remove Uncategorized: 1. Assign a new category to products 2. Create a new default cateogory "Uncategorized new" 3. Delete old "Uncategorized" 4. Celebrate
