How to Change Your Default Category From “Uncategorized” in WordPress

Categories are a type of taxonomy that WordPress uses to help users organize posts. If you’re a blogger, or create a lot of new content, you’re probably already using them.

In this quick guide, we’ll show you how to change your WordPress default category from uncategorized to something custom! It’s pretty simple, so let’s get started:
