• You can create categories and assign individual posts to each category
  • These categories can be selected by users to refine news content
  • Clicking the Categories link will display the Categories page. 
  • From here, you can see all your categories on the right, and where to add new ones.
  • When adding a new category on this screen, you’ll fill in the following fields:
    1. Name — The name is how it appears on your site.
    2. Slug — The “slug” is the URL-friendly version of the name. It is usually all lowercase and contains only letters, numbers, and hyphens.
    3. Parent — If you like, you can create a sub-category – a category within a category
    4. Description — The description is not prominent by default; however, some themes may display it.
  • ‘Uncategorized’ is an automatically created category, which only appears to the user if you have posts with no assigned categories
  1. To assign a post to a category, you must create the category first
  2. Once the desired category has been created, you can assign the post to the category from that post’s page
