Default Author Category


Allows each user profile to set a default category for whenever they create a post overriding the site wide default category. Each profile will have a place to set that user’s default category and then every time they create a new post, it will default to this category rather than the default category on the site level.


  • Profile dropdown to select a default category by author


  • Upload the folder default-author-category to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  • Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  • Update each author’s User Profile with the correct default category for that user
