Delete multiple categories at once (batch)

  1. I'm trying to delete multiple categories at once, instead of having to delete one by one under Manage/Categories. I've gotten "Post Control" and "Batch Categories" plugins installed, but they only seem to remove posts from categories. I want to delete the categories themselves.

    Is there any way to do this?

    From the dashboard -> manage -> categories -> you can delete them from there; I've not seen a better way myself to remove them.

    At wordpress.com there is no way to delete multiple categories all in one go. However, many people have requested this (see: the forum search box).

    However it sure sounds like you may have wordpress.org software because we do not have plugins at wordpress.com. In that case know that the software is different from our here at wordpress.com and that the forum for you is here http://wordpress.org/support

    In batches it can't be done - I just pulled up a faq -

  5. Okay thanks! And I'll redirect my question to WordPress.org.
