UnCategorized Screams NEWBIE

I have a checklist of things I do as soon as a new site is installed.  The fourth thing on that list is:

Change the name of the default category from Uncategorized to “General”

Nothing shouts NEWBIE to a blog ready more than having the default category name appearing on your posts.

This is a tip for NEWBIES and anyone that still has the uncategorized Category.


  1. A good source of information. Thanks for sharing this,. 🙂

  2. Great tip! No one wants to be seen as a newbie!

  3. Now why didn’t I think of that! There it was starring me in the face all those years!
