I woke up very early and couldn’t get back to sleep so I decided to clean up the back end of this site. When I imported this blog from Blogger.Com, WordPress converted all of my tags to categories. I had over 900 categories. I started to delete them a few at a time and I realized that was going to take a long time. Then something hit me – I had the default category set to “uncatagorized” which is not very helpful. I thought since the default topic of this blog is “education” I decided to make that the default in WordPress. To do that, you need to go to Settings > Writing and use the pull-down menu to select a new default. That was pretty easy. Then I was at the Categories page deleting things that should not be categories when I noticed at the bottom of the page there is a “category to tag converter” which will list all of your categories on one page and allow you to convert them all at once. I have finally gotten them down to a manageable, useful list. I could have asked someone about this but I wasn’t sure what I was asking for at first – this is a common tech issue!
