In the WordPress Dashboard – where you would list All Posts – the default is to show all categories in the list.
This can be good for some – but for me it makes the list look crowded and it's hard to use that way.
The titles get squashed so I could hardly read what each post was and because the title column was so narrow it made each post take up almost a whole visible screen in my browser
At the top of the page – when you are in the “All Posts” screen, you will see:
This opens up the options to choose some columns, and not others.
I chose to remove Author (which is always me), Categories (not important unless your category is “uncategorized”) and Tags:
As you can see in the above pic – it makes that list of All Posts much easier to read!
- If your posts are “uncategorized” you can go into “Quick Edit” under each post and pick a category.
- If you are not using tags when you write blog posts, start using them. I don't know how important they are in search engines – but every little thing helps
- If you have more than one author – you may want to keep that category. If you author is “admin” go over to the “Users” and edit the user to have your name or a pen name – so your posts are more personable!
