Default page template and categories... (2 posts)

    First, I'm really new at this... so go easy on me. Second, I installed WordPress and upload a few different themes... everything works great, I cannot thank the folks at WordPress enough for putting this together. Finally, I uploaded the MiniaPlus theme, which uses page templates, and I've noticed that when I select the "default template" from the selection, my new page is associated with a category... specifically cat #1. How can I disable the category assocation altogether as these are really just intended to be static pages... or, if it's easier, is there a way to allow me the ability to select the appropriate category? Thanks!

    Does your theme have a page.php? If so, you can just delete the template tag that calls for the category, then it won't show. Pages don't actually have categories, but I think they just get assigned to the default cat by default, like they have to have one, even tho they won't use them.

    If that theme did not come with a page.php, then you just need to copy everything in index.php, and rename it to page.php.
