Step 3: Select All Posts
To select all posts, select the Title Column (first column).
Now, select Edit from the Bulk Actions menu and click Apply.
When you click Apply, you should see the Astra Settings menu, which comes with the Astra Bulk Edit plugin.
You can make numerous modifications from here.
Most features, such as Header, Transparent Header, Footer, Sidebar, and so on, have an enable/disable option.
The normal WordPress bulk edit tool does not provide you with as many options to alter at once.
This is a fantastic Brainstorm Force plugin that only works with the Astra theme.
Astra Bulk Edit Plugin Applications
This small plugin can be useful in a variety of circumstances.
To begin, you can enable or disable a sidebar by selecting several posts or pages. Giving your long-form articles or posts a narrow width boxed effect.
Another example would be to use Astra Pro to generate custom page headers and then enable page headers on select blog articles or pages.
Assume you’ve constructed a Top bar and linked it to the header. You now just want a few pages to show that top bar. Open Astra’s Bulk Edit options, and enable the Top bar under the ‘Above Header’ drop down choice.
WordPress Bulk Editing Options
When it comes to bulk editing, Astra theme users have an advantage.
Brainstorm Force’s Bulk Edit plugin provides more than the average WordPress user.
Let’s have a look at the alternatives available while mass editing in WordPress.
You can alter the categories, author of the post, enable or deny comments, change the status and format of the article, and make it sticky on your website.

There are no other customization choices, such as enabling/disabling headers, footers, sidebars, page headers, and so on.
Users who are not using the Astra theme and require additional bulk editing tools can install plugins such as Bulky and Bulk modify by Codexin Technologies to modify picture alt tag, caption, and description.
