Discover: how to edit your categories in WordPress.com

I’m considered myself as a newbie on WordPress.com. For some reason, I typed in a capitalized category by mistake and want to edit it to be lowercase. I can’t edit or rename the category at the same place I created it.

After half an hour searching through my dashboard, I solved this issue and I hope it will benefit those newbies on WordPress.com like me.

First, save your post as a draft (it is expected that your post should be saved automatically by WordPree.com). Go to “My Sites” and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the sidebar. You should see the “Settings” tab.

Once you’ve clicked the “Settings” tab, click on Writing > Categories. That’s where you can edit your categories. You can also add new categories in this section if you wish.
