    Guys,

    Does anyone know how to import multiple categories (say 100 or more) in to Wordpress so you don't have to import them individually?

    Also, is there a way to import them in a structure format. For example, something like this...

    Coats
    - Mens
    - Womens
    - Childrens

    Jeans
    - Mens
    - White Washed
    - Blue
    - Womens
    - Boys

    I wonder if this could be achieved by importing part or all of the MySQL database that contains the categories into the new wordpress website?

    Could this work?
    Step 1) I guess you could check this out if you first installed a new copy of wordpress. Next, go to cpanel and use phpmyadmin to get a copy of the MySQL database and save that as a text file. Exit phpMyAdmin.

    Step 2) After that, create just 1 Category and 1 subcategory in the newly created Wordpress site. Again, go back to phpMyAdmin to get a copy of the MySQL database and save that as a text file.

    Step 3) Finally, compare what's different between the text file in steps 1 and 2. I guess you could try the "find" function in notepad to search for your newly created category and subcategory. If you can find them or lines of code in the text file that show you that the category is stored there, you might be able to figure out where to paste the old 200+ categories into a new WP MySQL database.

    If you do try it out, let us know how it goes, okay?

    Thank you.

    Cheerio :)
