Can I remove a category on a WordPress blog post?

The category and tag links on WordPress blog posts provide a quick way for readers to find related articles. More than one category can be shown on a post. If you posted with a category that you later decide is not appropriate, is is easily removed or changed.

Sign in to your WordPress Dashboard. On the left find the Posts link. Click on it to expand the menu. Click on the next Posts link.image This will bring up a page listing your imageposts. Move the pointer to just below the title of the post you wish to modify. This makes several option links visible. Click the Edit link.

The Edit Post page comes up with that post loaded. Over on the right side, you may have to scroll down a bit, find the Categories listings. image

Note that the currently assigned categories show a check mark in the box in front of the category name.

To add a category just click the box or category name you wish to add.

Similarly, click on an already checked category to uncheck it.

Click the Update button. Now only the checked categories will show for that post.

You can even add a new category right on this page. There is an Add New Category link right below the categories listing.
