Okay... so I've read in several posts on here that you can't get rid of the default category in the admin panel. I'm sick of having to uncheck that category when I want to post and I have several other authors on my blog who often forget to do the same.
I'm trying to create an 'exclusion' to make wordpress ignore that category at all times (when wp_list_cats, and list_cats are called as well as any other time that this new "invisible" category might show up). Unfortunately, it seems like there are calls for category listings pretty often. Is there any simple way to do this, or do I have to go and edit every individual call for category listings?
