Removing default category for posts

    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”
    You will need staff intervention. Support hours weekdays 9 – 5 PM Pacific time
