This is a simple plugin which is designed to help the posters who some times forget to select the post category and post is published under default category. Once activated, this plugin will force the users to select post category while adding new post to wordpress site. Whenever User tries to publish a post without selecting category, it will give an alert to the user and also highlight the category selection area so that user can see from where to select the post category.
Moreover, If poster hasn’t selected the category while clicking on publish button, it will save the post as draft under default, so no need to worry about loosing the post content in any case due to this plugin.

Just found this little gem of a plugin. Its so simple to use, literally just install then forget about it. I have two categories, and needed to make sure at least one of them was selected. This did the job perfectly. Thanks!
Works just as advertised. Thank you for saving me some coding time Jatinder.
Does what it says it does – forces a user to select a Category before publishing.
