How to Easily Bulk Delete WordPress Posts on Your Site wp lifetime webs

Trying to delete multiple WordPress posts in bulk? WordPress has built-in tools to help manage multiple posts but selecting and deleting them can take some time. In this video, we’ll show you some of our recommended ways to handle bulk deleting posts in WordPress!

The first method will be using the built-in WordPress method in the Posts, All Posts page. You would want to check the box next to the post you are wanting to delete or click the check at the top of the list to select all of the posts. Using the screen options in the top right you can decide the number of posts to display on one page.

Use the dropdown at the top to select the bulk action, in this case, we will select delete to delete the images. To sort the posts so you have more control over what is selected, if you click the author’s name it will display all of the posts by that author while if you click a category it will show all of the posts in that specific category.

For our second method we will be using the “Bulk Delete” plugin:

With the plugin installed and activated you will want to click on the Bulk WP menu option to see the plugin’s settings. This plugin allows you to decide posts by date range, post type, and even delete post revisions using the plugin.
