I would like to know how to bulk delete posts from a specific category using the WP-CLI, any tip?


This should delete all posts in your category:

wp post delete $(wp post list --cat=your_category_ID --format=ids)

Or directly:

wp db query [<your_sql_query>]

For more info:

wp post delete --help
wp post list --help
wp db query --help
