How do I Create a WordPress Blog Category?

Creating a New WordPress Blog Category

Once logged into your WordPress website look in the menu on the left side of your screen, hover on Posts. Next, you want to navigate to the section called categories in the menu that appears.

In order to create a new post category simply fill out the following fields:

  • Name: In the first box on the screen, enter the name to the new category you are adding.
  • Slug: In the second box on the screen, enter the slug of your category. It is important to only use lowercase letters and not to use any spaces, only hyphens.
  • Parent: This field is entirely optional. Parents are used when one category is a sub-category of another.
