Category ID 1 missing (3 posts)

    I've just set up a WordPress blog and renamed my categories so that 'Uncategorized' is now 'General' etc. In the process I seem to have lost Category ID 1. Now I only have ID 2 (Blogroll), ID 3 (General) and ID 4 (Articles).

    I am concerned that I no longer have ID 1, and think it may cause problems down the track.

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do to retrieve Category ID 1?

    You cannot and don't worry about it. That's the normal behaviour of the MySQL databse. If you delete all your present categories, and create new ones, they will start at 5 (if you have 4 the highest number now).
    It won't cause any kind of problem.

    I guess you have deleted Uncat and didn't rename it.

    OK, thanks Moshu, you've put my mind at rest!
