Prevent Posts from Accidentally Appearing in the »Uncategorized« Category
deUncategorize is bloody brilliant [...] Genius! Jo Salmon
Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve posted something on your WordPress blog in the appropriate categories just to notice several days later you forgot to assign a category which resulted in an Uncategorized post? Then this straight forward plugin is for you (and your WordPress installation)!
There’s only one version for WordPress 2.0.x and 2.1 and later. The only difference since WordPress 2.1 is the lack of a checked default category for new posts. Forgetting to set a category will result in an Uncategorized post after all. So deUncategorize still comes in handy to automatically deselect the default category when editing a post after submitting it and assigning the first custom category.
