WooCommerce – Bulk Delete all Categories, Tags, or Attributes

In this quick tutorial, we’ll show you how to delete all categories, tags or attributes. This is really important if you have thousands of categories, tags or attributes, and want to delete them all at once.

For this we’ll use the Categories, Tags, Product Attributes, Taxonomies Spreadsheet plugin. This tool displays all your product and post categories, tags and attributes in a spreadsheet where you can quickly apply changes to thousands of your taxonomies.

After installing and activating the plugin, you’ll need to go to WP Sheet Editor > Edit taxonomies and follow these simple steps:

1- Open the spreadsheet you’ll use

This plugin creates several spreadsheets. In this case you have the option of selecting any of these spreadsheets:

  • Edit Product categories
  • Edit Product tags
  • Edit Product Color
  • Edit Product Size
  • Etc., depending on the attributes you’ve created

Just click on the spreadsheet you’ll use.

We’ll use the categories spreadsheet as an example, and you can apply these simple steps to any of the spreadsheets you’re using.

2- Open the Bulk Edit tool

You need to open the Bulk Edit tool, which is located on the plugin’s toolbar. It will allow you to quickly delete all categories, tags or attributes.

3- Delete all items

Now you just need to select these values to delete all categories, tags or attributes.

  • Select the rows that you want to update: Select all the rows from my current search (even non-visible rows).
  • What field do you want to edit: Status
  • Select type of edit: Set value
  • Replace existing value with this value: delete
  • Click on Execute now

Once you do it, all your categories, tags or attributes will be deleted.

Remember

You decide which spreadsheet you’ll use, but the steps are the same in all cases. It’s really simple and fast to apply changes to thousands of categories, tags or attributes with the Categories, Tags, Product Attributes, Taxonomies Spreadsheet plugin.
