Author Default Category


A basic default category plugin.
The main purpose of this plugin is to provide different default categories on a per user basis.

I was looking for a plugin to set a different default category for my flickr posts (through XMLRPC API).
And there was no built-in function to set a default category to a particular user.

This plugin is very simple :

  • any author can set it’s own default category (user can edit_posts)
  • any admin can modify an author default category (user can edit_user)
  • anywhere in WordPress a user get it’s default category where applicable : posts, API posts, … except in the writing settings page


  • User profile with default category selection


  1. Upload wp-adc.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


It doesn’t work?
