How to publish multiple posts/pages on WordPress
This does not require any special knowledge or plugin to happen. Simply select the posts or pages and hit the publish button. Surprised? Okay, here’s what I meant.
Login to your WP dashboard
On your WP dashboard, navigate to the posts menu and then drafts. Now, you’ll have to select all the posts you wish to publish at the time by ticking on the checkboxes beside them. Click on the checkbox beside the “Title” option to highlight all posts on drafts. Check the screenshot below if you are not clear.
Bulk edit them
On the top left corner, you’ll see the “Bulk Actions” menu. Click on the drop-down menu, select “Edit“, and then click on “Apply“. It will take you the final step.
Publish the posts
Now, choose the categories where the posts will be filed under and also set the tags. Even so, you can even select a specific author and assign the posts to him/her. Once you’re done with this edit, hit the “Update” button and the posts will all be published at once.
The whole posts you selected will be published immediately bearing the name of the author you selected and the filed under the category you indicated. For publishing bulk Pages at once, it is the same process. But, instead, you’ll navigate to the pages tab from your WP dashboard and not posts.
