Deleting Uncategorized Categories

Hello,

Iíve tried solutions in older threads with no success. Is there a way to actually delete an uncategorized category? I know about going to the admin panel and disabling uncategorized post but this simply hides the category. Is there a way to fully delete it? I donít even know how it was created.

Thank you!

Assuming you are on an Apache server, you can put a 301 permanent redirect pointing the category you do not want anymore to another category or page on your site.

What are you using to run the site so we can give you more detailed information?

I can suggest a better way to overcome this issue.
Rename uncategorized category to general category.
Category and tags by default comes with WordPress installation.

Usually, you can just go to Posts Ľ Categories and delete a category. However, you cannot delete a default category until you assign another category to be used as default.

You can go to categories option and change its slug to General.

Here is the solution, in order to delete uncategorized, you need to set a default category in WordPress, go under Settings, then, click on Writing and next, you'll find the option to select "Default Post Category", select the one you want and save. Now, you'll be able to remove that uncategorized category.

It will be easier to rename it.
