Categories can help you organize your WordPress content. Categories can also your visitors to find the content they're looking for.

In this video, Topher has a post called "Local Events Continue to Increase".

On the right-hand side of the post is a box called "Categories". By default, there is a category called "Uncategorized" because WordPress must have a category.

Click "Add New Category" and you can create new categories for your posts. If you assign your post to a new category, WordPress will show the new category when you view the post.

It is possible to have child, nested categories. One example would be "Music" as a child category of "Events".

Click "Categories" in your WordPress admin menu, and you can manage your site's categories.
