How To Change Default Post Category In WordPress ?

Recently someone asked me how to change default post category in WordPress. The problem he was experiencing is that he hardly post anything in his blog’s default category which he created few years back and everytime he post something new he finds himself constantly having to change to a different post category.

This is a common WordPress problem among most of the WP users because in the CATEGORY section (dashboard->posts->categories) there is no option available for changing default post categories but WordPress allows you to change default post category from the options menu.

3 simple steps for changing default post category:

  1. Visit your Dashboard
  2. Move to Settings->Writing
  3. Under the Writing Section, choose your Default Post Category.
