Category named “1” keeps creating itself!

    In my blog (, it would seem that a category naming itself “1” keeps on creating itself over and over, and then defaulting each post to be posted under it!
    I delete the category, then it seemingly just appears again when I go to add a new post!

    Any ideas?

    Cheers, Jack.

    The blog I need help with is



    I think I’ve nuked it once and for all Jack, let me know if you run into problems again!


    @jack: Just so that you know, that happens when you have deleted the original default category without setting another one in its place (in Settings>Writing).



    @panaghiotisadam: thanks dude, i had the same problem… after setting default category in ‘settings > writing’, it does not create category called ‘1’ for new posts if not specified.
    Thanks again!


    You’re welcome. (With all my respect to hanni, I think informing is more useful than “nuking”.)



    keep up the nuking more fun
