#4845 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Category to Tag converter allows you to convert the default category

You can convert the default category into a tag either by explicitly choosing it from the list or by clicking "convert all".

Whithout a default category, new, uncategorized posts are given the category "1".

Possible solutions:

  1. Allow a post to be truly uncategorized (i.e. not associated with any categories, or associated with a "null" category used only internally).
  2. Not allow the default category to be converted to a tag.
  3. If default category is converted, create new default category.

  • Keywords taxonomy added
  • Owner changed from anonymous to ryan

  • Priority changed from normal to high
  • Version set to 2.3

I vote for a blend of 2 and 3. Create the tag from the default cat, associate the posts, but don't delete the category or the associations with the posts for that category.

That implements Mark's suggestion of blending 2 and 3.
