I have one category on my blog: daily entries. Right now, it’s the only one I need. As I’m typing a new post, however, another category, created automatically and labeled “1,” just shows up. Oftentimes if I haven’t yet clicked “daily entries” for my post, the blog just creates this “1” category and defaults my posting to it—I guess during auto-save.
At least three times a day, I click on Categories under My Dashboard and delete it, but it keeps returning. Anyone know how to permanently remove or eliminate this? Anyone else experiencing the same thing?
The #1 category is created automatically because you have deleted the default post category (uncategorized) but you have not set another category as the default at settings > writing. Go there and set daily entries as the default and save the changes and the problem will go away.
