Why change the default post category? If your website or blog frequently makes posts that relate to a particular category, this option will make your life easier. It’s convenient not to have to select the same category over and over, especially if you’re going to be writing an article series or be live blogging for an event.
Once you are logged into your WordPress website or blog it only takes a few steps to change the default post category:
- On the Administration Screens, go to Settings > Writing.
- Look for Default Post Category.
- Click the drop-down menu next to Default Post Categoryand select the desired category you would like to set as your default post category.
