Thanks for the info. I don't want any categories so I just deleted the "uncategorized" and left it blank. That seemed to work.

In your posts - categories section just rename the uncategorised with something relevant to your Niche.

When editing a post, simply uncheck the 'Uncategorized' box in the categories section on the right-hand menu. Let me know if the screenshot I attached is helpful!

Thanks for the reply. I tried that but the check mark keeps coming back after I update. Is it possibly a theme related issue?

Are you also replacing it with another category? I believe that it will revert to 'Uncategorized' if you don't replace it with another category, even if you uncheck the box...also, what theme are you running?

I left the category field blank since I don't want categories. That worked as my posts no longer have categories listed. I'm using Chic Lifestyle Pro.
