Instead, posts that were only assigned to the deleted category are set to the default category. If you have a lot of categories that you want to delete, then you can use the bulk actions feature. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#bulk-actions September 12, 2012 at 8:13 pm #1009729 kqduaneMember Thanks for your help.
