I don’t know about you but I end up with uncategorized posts all the time by mistake. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a plugin that required a category before a post was updated or published? The Require Post Category Plugin can help with that.
This plugin doesn’t have a whole lot of bells and whistles but does what it promises. If you forget to choose a category before hitting “Publish,” this plugin will show you an alert to get your attention. You can download the Require Post Category plugin for free.
