How-to: Change The Default Category For Your Posts In Wordpress


You probably have noticed it, but every time you post a new entry to your WordPress website, there’s an option where you can assign a category.

If you fail to categorize the new post, it’ll automatically be grouped under the “uncategorized” folders.

It’s very important that you categorize your post for organization.

When you categorize a post, your readers can easily find content on your website. It’ll also help you sort out your content.

All you have to do is choose a default category and the next time you post something, that post will automatically be group under your chosen default category.

In this post, I’ll share a comprehensive step-by-step procedure (with photos) on how you can change your default category.
