Is there a way to require the selection of a Category that is not “Uncategorized” before allowing someone to post? Too many posts go into Uncategorized and a lot of time is spent re-categorizing posts because some people just don’t bother.
There is! Disabling the uncategorized category will require users to choose a category before they can start typing. To do so, go to site settings and uncheck
allow uncategorized topics.

Thanks for the quick answer!
Does this option still allow people to choose “Uncategorized” as the category before posting? If so, is there a way to prevent that so all posts are categorized?
No it does not. If the site setting
allow uncategorized topics is disabled, uncategorized is no longer an option for users or staff to select.
Great, that’s perfect, thanks!
