Wordpress, Scott, Amazon discussed on Posts – Imagely


Welcome to the WordPress photography podcast, the podcast for photographers who wanna learn how to get the most out of WordPress to grow their photography business. You don't need to be a geek to understand WordPress. Settled back and listen as we show you how. Now, here's your host, Scott widened kipah wits. Welcome to episode Seventy-nine. My name is Scott widened, give woods and today. I want to answer another question from you, the listeners the community photographers who are using WordPress in the WordPress press photographers group on Facebook. I personally run there was a question asked. Is there a way to change the category of three hundred posts in a quick way? The answer is. Yes. And what I wanna do is show you right now. How to go about that? So I created a dummy instance, and you can see right here. There are twenty posts that have one carry category. Call this category needs to be renamed I made and then there's another call the default category called uncategorized and two hundred ninety eight posts with that category. So I'm going to quickly just go back to the post list just to show you real quick how you can change the category. If you wanna see more. Post like three hundred posts you can hit the show show screen options and change at two three hundred. However, if you're on a shared host if you're on a host that doesn't have their their PHP ramp up all the way as high as good possibly be you might find your having timeouts so it won't actually work. When you go to make a bulk changed the three hundred posts so in this situation in might be worth going page by page, or let's say increasing the fifty maybe a hundred but you go into like three hundred one might wind up causing us some trouble. So, but that said you can select everything on the page. You're on go to bulk actions. Hit edit you can actually in bulk remove a category. It you can do it. If you do one at a time, so you can quick at it and just remove one category. See if I go like this. Now, there's one that's category, but you can't actually remove category. One category in. In bulk from a group oppose. So that's a little tricky. So what you would have to do in this situation. Is you go to the categories posts in categories, and you can actually go to less want to rename this one called uncategorized has two hundred ninety eight posts in it. You can go and click edit for that category. And then change it from I from uncategorized or whatever to I just renamed this posts change slug to renamed and then hit update and now all of them every single one has new category can see two hundred eight now have a new category with a new slug called I just rename this post. So if you wanna go from from Porsche photography to to engagement for talker for you or you want to go from of photography to wedding photography or something like that you can do that. The simplest way is just literally rename a post category in the categories tab, the other way if you have. Couple of post you want to do is to do it. Using the bulk options book at it's inside the post, but again, you can't really remove categories only add categories, so you could if you wanted to add a new category, and then delete the old category through categories. So simplest way. Just edit rename the actual category. If you have any questions about categories in by the way, this works with tags as well, then go to Amazon dot com slash podcast slash seventy nine and you know, comment, let me hear your questions.
