There are situations were you need to create bulk number of categories in your wordpress blog. If there is an automatic method or plugin available then i would be helpful right ? Recently, i was looking to create bulk number of categories in one my blog and i was totally helpless.
I tried many plugin’s and methods but could not easily make that to work. So I thought of sharing you all on, how to add bulk categories that too automatically into your wordpress blog ?
Its really painful, if you want to create say 50 new categories. For example, this kind of requirement may come when you are launching your own article directories using wordpress or simpler situations.
- I tried many useless plugins and after spending hours, Category Import is the best choice. This plugin is easy to use.
Once installed, all you have to do is follow the below steps to create categories:
- Go to Posts -> Category Import from your wordpress dashboard.
- There is only one text box where you have to add all your categories one per line.
- You could create sub-categories also using the “/” option. For example, “WordPress\SEO Tips” will create you a sub-category named “SEO Tips” under the parent category “WordPress”.
- Then click “Add categories”, you are done.
Manually adding bulk number of categories is a painful task and with Category Import wordpress plugin, you could do in minutes especially without Stress.
- To mention, i tried the Post Corrector plugin too but looks like the author has not updated it for the latest versions of wordpress. You could try that if you are using the older 2+ versions of wordpress, it may work.
