This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Adding multiple categories in WordPress can be a real pain. When you want categories for every country in the world, it is a horrible job to fill out and submit the new category form hundreds of times, especially if you’re adding terms that have a hierarchy!

BulkPress makes this process much easier, by providing you with an easy-to-user interface to add categories (and terms of custom taxonomies) and pages/posts (and posts of custom post types) in bulk, giving you the option to specify a hierarchy in the added posts or terms.

BulkPress can spare you hours of your time, just try and find out for yourself!

More to come…

BulkPress will be updated with new functionalities very regularly. What to think of the following features coming to your WordPress installations soon…

  • Mass add users
  • Specify attributes for the pages you’re creating in bulk, such as the page template
  • Promoting multiple users to a different role in one go
  • Much, much more…

It does what it says. "It just works". Would be be great if we could add categories or tags to each post but that's fine. Tested with WordPress 5.8 and it works like a charm.

Considering how i wasted my time with many other plugins... this one was straightforward. Copy Paste and Execute... Done. Simple and effective. Thanks

While it seems to work, I cannot in good faith recommend a plugin that has not received any updates or been tested in the past three years. I hope the developer/maintainer gives this plugin a little love and testing so it does not fall by the wayside.

This plugin is a hidden gem in a world dominated by popular paid plugins that might cost you upwords of $200 just so you can import the custom taxonomies. I neeeded to create custom taxonomies in bulk and it took surprising amount of time to search and land on this plugin. I am very thankful to the plugin creator for making this plugin and keeping it free.
