Removing default category for posts

  1. Since moving to tags I have been having all new blog posts I've made with Windows Live Writer or ecto appear in a category "24924". It turns out that this is set as the default category on my Dashboad, and I can't seem to remove it. Is it even possible to change?

  2. In Options/Writing you'll find a drop-down box enabling you to change your default category. The usual default is Uncategorized. If WLW is misbehaving, that's another matter.

    You can eliminate categories in Manage/Categories. Simply check the Delete box and proceed.

  3. We do not have control of the Category slug so if we make changes they do not "take" http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=17126&page&replies=7#post-129475
    You will need staff intervention. Support hours weekdays 9 - 5 PM Pacific time http://wordpress.com/contact-support/
