It's time for your daily dose of Wordpress Wisdom! In today's quick tutorial I'll be showing you how to get rid of that pesky "uncategorized" label you may have seen at the end of your blog posts, both in the article itself and in the blogroll. I'm going to show you why it's there in the first place (don't worry, it's not your fault), how to correctly categorize your content, and then, last but not least, how to remove that label if you don't want to see it altogether using CSS coding. Let's dive in!

As always, please feel free to share this video to anyone needing help with this. If you have any Wordpress related questions that you'd like to see me create a tutorial around feel free to send me a private message or leave me a message on my profile.

Great stuff Eric... I trust you have been productive today as well buddy!!

👍👍

That’s the goal every day!

Absolutely buddy!!

👍👍

Thanks Eric, I love your short & sweet nuggets of Wordpress knowledge. Another thing I do to help avoid the dreaded "Uncategorized" category, is go into Settings --> Writing (in Wordpress back-office) and set the default writing category to my generic "General Info" category. Then if I forget to set the proper categories on a new post, at least it won't be Uncategorized. 😊

That’s a good reminder of what options are available to you. I might make this another Wordpress Wisdom 👍🏼

That would be cool. I made a quick edit to my comment because I said "WA" instead of "Wordpress".

Thanks again, Eric. Very helpful!

Karin
