Creating Categories in WordPress

[wpmudev-video video=”categories”]

Categories are designed to organize your posts and make it easier for visitors to search through your site’s content. To create one, go to Posts in the side bar and select Categories.

-Start by giving your category a name for when it appears on your site
-Then, give it a Slug – which is a URL-friendly version of the name
-Beneath slug, you can assign a current category as a Parent, which will turn the current category into a sub-category, to further organize your content.
-Lastly, you can add a description so that you can know what each category is for

After you have finished these, click Add New Category.

Note: If you ever need to make any changes to your categories, all you have to do is hover over the one you would like to change and select edit.
