  1. Check a category.
  2. Uncheck “Uncategorized”.
  3. Mutter “stupid ‘Uncategorized’” under your breath.

Sound familiar? With this stupidly simple plugin, you just have to do the first step. When you check a category and the default category was the only thing checked before you clicked, it’ll uncheck the default category for you. Boom.


  1. Upload the categorized folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory

  2. Activate the “Categorized” plugin in your WordPress administration interface


What if I want to use the default category?

Just re-check it. You’ll only have to do that once per post.

Does this work on Quick Edit?

Yeah, it should.

Does this work for custom hierarchical taxonomies?

Probably not.
