    Hello all,
    I recently set up a blog for my elderly not so internet savvy sister. She loves it!! My problem is with her posts going into the uncategorized category by default. You might say to tell her to check the proper box/es. I have and I reiterate the adjective elderly. I am amazed that she can find her way to make the posts. Is there a way to change the default category? Or will I need to go in daily to resolve manually? She will occasionally add tags but the 'add tag' makes it to the blog too. Did I say she loves her blog?!!

    Is there a way to change the default category?

    Are you sure you are familiar with the tool you installed for your sister? :)
    admin > Settings > Writing?

    (not to mention, you can even rename the "uncategorized" in admin > Manage > Categories)

    o.k. so i went into the dashboard > manage > categories and there is nothing that allows me to change the uncategorized category. i can change the categories that i have added to the blog. does it matter that the blog is not hosted by wordpress? i am not even given the choice to delete that category.

    I gave you two (2) options - if you can read them:
    1. change the default category, i.e. set another category as default
    2. to rename/edit the "Uncategorized"

    admin > Settings > Writing
    admin > Manage > Categories

    Is this a WordPress blog we are discussing?
