    I hate to appear stupid, but I can't figure out how to change the category of my pages. I'm using the WP Classic theme. Thanks.

    Pages or Posts? Pages don't have categories.

    It's a page, and it displays a "Filed under..." line at the top.

    It is because your theme doesn't have a Page template (page.php) and in this case WP uses the index.php template to display your Pages. Yet, Pages don't have categories as it was stated above. If the template tag to display categories is there... they will always show the default category.

    I'm having a problem with this as well.

    Each post I have is wrapped by a div that uses php to pull the category name as the class selector. The way I have it set, every post has an icon that is at the beginning of the post, using background positioning and text-indentation through css.

    I have one category, labeled "uncategorized" that does not put a background, therefore no icon, and has no indentation. This is what I'd like to use for my Pages, since they aren't categorized.

    Problem is, out of the 3 Pages I have created, somehow the third one is filed under "information" and has the information icon at the beginning of the text on the page.

    I've checked and double-checked and I have my Options set to have "uncategorized" as the default category on my posts. Shouldn't that make Pages default to that category as well?

    If you're replying to this, please email me. rbt@circuitsixteen.com
