Bulk Post Edit - No Categories Are Checkmarked (5 posts)

    I am on 2.8.6 and was on 2.8.5 and this exists in both versions.

    When I go to "Edit Posts" and do a search for say "EDF", I get three results of posts with "EDF" in the title. These posts are attached to multiple categories. I am trying to uncheck one category to remove these posts from it. However, when I select these three posts and then choose "Edit-->Apply" the normal bulk editing display comes up, but none of the categories have checkmarks next to them. So I can't "unselect" the category I need to remove these posts from.

    I've been limping along editing individual posts, but I wonder if anyone else has experienced this?

    Can someone else please try to duplicate this? I have deactivated a bunch of plugins that I thought could be possibly be conflicting, but no luck yet. The same behavior exists on multiple blogs, even one with only two posts and two categories.

    My next step is to start removing mu-plugins, but I would be very curious if anyone else can duplicate this before I go to that extreme.

    It looks like for categories and tags you can only add new ones to the posts in the bulk edit.

    Thanks for confirming this. So, it seems this is by design. This means there is no way to bulk remove posts from categories.

    I suppose I can put this in as a feature request in trac?

    The bulk edit comes from WP, so that would be the trac to submit the ticket on.
