The category that won’t die

    When I was new to wordpress, I unintentionally created a category named “1.” Although I have deleted it at least 12 times, it returns every time. Worse, it seems to be the default category. There are no posts attached to it. How do I get rid of it?

    The blog I need help with is


    Set a different category as the default at settings > writing. Then you should be able to delete it and it will stay gone.



    Thank you for the prompt and helpful reply. I changed the setting as you advised and am sure problem is solved.


    You’re welcome.
