    Hi,
    I am looking for an easy way to add bulk categories in Wordpress - found a couple of plugins but they don't seem to work!

    Has anyone got a plugin or some other way of achieving this?

    Thanks
    Sara

    I tried the lordtime one and it seems to have changed, there is no options at the top so I can't see a way to "bulk add categories" to wordpress.

    I am looking for a way to add loads of categories, ie place names into a blog rather than do it all one at a time.

    EDIT: I seem to have found the option under posts/bulk create categories

    Thanks!

    You should edit it or create by your own and i don't think that you will need more than 20 to 30 categories a day.
