Writing includes settings pertinent to the post formatting and category options.

  • Default Post Category: This option allows you to set the category for those posts which you have not assigned any category. Also, it can be useful when you delete the category of any post, then default category is assigned to that particular post.
  • Default Post Format: This option is available to create different styling for the different types of posts. There are different types of post format which can be selected from the drop-down. The settings exist only if the activated theme supports the post format. Distinct post formats include Standard (no special format), aside, gallery and so on.
  • Save Changes: Clicking on this option makes sure that your changes have been saved in the database. This is further confirmed by a confirmation text box that appears at the top of the page, once changes have been saved.
