Require Post Category

Description

Tired of uncategorized posts? Use this simple plugin to require users to choose a post category before saving a draft, updating a post, or publishing a post. This applies to normal posts and is not compatible with custom write panels or custom post types without modification.

Translators

If you have created your own language pack, or have an update of an existing one, you can send the PO and MO files to me so that I can bundle it into the plugin. Download the latest POT file.

Screenshots

  • Alert appears when you try to save a post without choosing a category

Installation

  1. Extract the require-post-category folder to your wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the admin interface

FAQ

Are there any settings I can adjust?

Nope, just install and activate, that’s it!
