Can't delete category, it is the Default... (4 posts)

    Well, actually no it's not.
    My wordpress seems to think that the Subcategory titled "Work" is my default category. - I have the theory that it's because I renamed uncategorized to work before I created new categories and initially changed the Default to "Daily" in the Options.

    So now, In options I'm told the default cateogry is Daily, but I can't delete work - I'm confused. :(

    I think the problem is that the CatID is 1, and I don't think WP will let you delete CatID 1.

    that's upsetting, I suppose I'll just switch the names then.

    Any reason why pages are categorized but I cant' control which category they go into?

    They actually aren't or shouldn't be categorized. I think the database just ends up defaulting to Cat1 for them. Easiest thing to do is just delete the tag for the category from the page.php template.
