Last night, I was sat at my desk at midnight with the ominous task of creating a large numbe rof categories for a taxonomy, and I wasn't looking forward to it. I needed to create a list of countries, and that meant creating 205 separate categories.
It took me 5 seconds to add them all :o)
Just before I started to do it, I was checking with my friend, Mr Google, to see if there was an alternative and discovered a great, and free, plugin, which allows you to add categories in bulk. Just select where you want it to be be, such as the normal post categories or a taxonomy, from the drop-down menu, past in your list and then click the button.
That's it :o)
Get your copy and save yourself hours of numb finger-tapping:
