I have a similar question: I’m new to WordPress and somehow added the number “1” as a “Catagory”, which I don’t need, nor is it pertinent to anything, but I can’t figure out how to PERMENTANTLY delete it. I do so in the ‘editing’ area, but whenever I revise my draft, it pops up and I have to “delete” it again.
Then I tried to convert it to something else, but it stays as “1” and it’s driving me nuts!! How do I permenantly delete a catagory or tag to where it will never darken my blogs doorway again?
That’s probably because you deleted the default “Uncategorized” category without setting another one in its place. Go to Settings>Writing, select one of your existing categories from the “Default Post Category” dropdown, click Save Changes.
