    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?

    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.

    We do not have control of the Category slug so if we make changes they do not “take” https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=17126&page&replies=7#post-129475
