Support » Fixing WordPress » Category ID 1 missing

  • Hi

    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!
