Adding categories

  1. How do I add categories so that all blogs aren't put into "Uncategorized"?
    Thank you :-)

    The blog I need help with is lornajmccluskey.wordpress.com.

  2. Be aware that Posts and Pages are not the same https://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ and only Posts can have categories and/or tags assigned to them.
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/tags/

    Note that you must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered the site to do what I posted below.

    The Admin login link to the dashboard for every blog hosted by wordpress.COM is:

    http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    * You will have to replace "name_of_blog" with your actual blog's name in that URL.

    If the log-in information is lost you need to visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    1. To edit or delete a category assigned to a post (whether it’s a draft or has already been published), go to Dashboard → Posts → All Posts in your dashboard, hover over the title and click the Edit link. To delete the post click the Trash link.

    For editing post in the new editor see https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/#go-back-and-edit-posts

    2. To edit/delete categories in your dashboard go to Dashboard → Posts → Categories

    http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category

    * You will have to replace "name_of_blog" with your actual blog's name in that URL.

    3. To edit or delete dynamic category pages from your custom menu go to Dashboard > Appearance > Menus

    http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com/wp-admin/nav-menus.php

    * You will have to replace "name_of_blog" with your actual blog's name in that URL.

    4. To edit or delete Tags go to
    http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=post_tag

    * You will have to replace "name_of_blog" with your actual blog's name in that URL.
