Firstly, I know that I can change the default post category in the dropdown box in the Dashboard's "Writing" Settings.
The dilemma is that I don't want my authors to have to manually select the Category on the post-new.php page.
Is there a way to create a hyperlink to post-new.php so that a category is already checked off for my authors?
For example, my site would ask: "What are you blogging about?" and there would be hyperlinks corresponding to each category (photography, music, video etc.) When clicked it would take the authors to a post-new.php with the corresponding cat checked off.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your time on this matter.
