    Can you tell me if its possible to movie post around, so the newer posts won't be in the top/front?

    What if, having 50 posts, I only want to move say, 20 posts to a new category and wish to leave the remaining 30 where they are?

    I love your videos! They are easy to follow. My question is how do I get rid of the ''uncategorized'' category as I do want it to show on my sidebar. Thanks!
