Fortunately, WordPress has a built-in feature for that.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to use that feature and bulk edit WordPress posts and pages!
How to bulk edit posts
What you need to do is to:
- Go to Posts -> All Posts;
- Select the posts that you want to edit, by checking the boxes in front of them;
- From the Bulk Actions drop-down menu, select Edit;
- Click the Apply button next to the drop-down menu;
- Make your desired changes to the selected posts;

- Click the Update button;
That’s it! Easy, right?
How to bulk edit pages

That’s a wrap
