Deleting Uncategorized Categories


I’ve tried older solutions in threads with no . 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 don’t even know how it was created.

Step 2: Delete Uncategorized. Now that you've chosen a different default post category, you'll be able to delete uncategorized. Go into Posts > Categories, and you'll notice the option to delete uncategorized is visible now. Click on delete and it's gone!Aug 28, 2015

In writing, you will notice that 'Uncategorized' is the default post category and is automatically selected as the category that all posts are written to. To change this, click on 'uncategorized' and change it to your new category. (In this case, my category is 'All'.)
Now that uncategorized is no longer the default category, it's time to get rid of it completely. Go to posts -> categories. DELETE Uncategorized!
Click Delete. (I know you were waiting for those words.)
Congratulations! Your days of being uncategorized are over.
