We recently shared this tutorial on how to create categories and subcategories in WordPress, what we did not tell you is that a new WordPress installation comes with a default category called Uncategorized that is used to categorize posts that you forget to assign a category to. Many WordPress beginners struggle with the idea of deleting this category and are often stuck on how to do that especially when they realize that it does not have a delete option. However, in this tutorial, we are going to show you how you can change the default category and/or rename it. We are going to cover the following;
- Changing the default category in WordPress.
- Renaming the default category in WordPress.
