How to change Category on a blog

I have the current version of b2evo installed. I didn't set up categories and my first 2 posts have been tagged as 'Uncategorised'. I have now created a category and my 3rd post was assigned it at creation. I have tried to go back to the first 2 and assign them just to the new category. Instead they end up with both the new category "Preparation" and Uncategorised. I can't seem to strip Uncategorised off. Is this because it is baked into the slug, or am I doing something wrong?

Also the new post seem to want to tick both "Main"and "Extra" for the chosen category. Every time I untick Extra and Save it comes back with both ticked. Is this a setting somewhere, or how it is supposed to work. I get a message about cross posting which seems strange as it is only in one category, although as both Main and Extra.

'Uncategorized' is the category b2evo creates by default if you don't create any categories explicitly.

The main category will always also be an extra category.

If you deselected "uncategorized" (main & uncheck "extra" checkbox), then your post in no longer in the uncategorized category.

Nothing is baked into the slugs, unless it is in a web-cache that hasn't refreshed yet.

Please posts screenshots of your issues. "I get a message about cross posting" is not precise enough. Do you have multiple collections set up?

I have just tried to select only 1 (new) category and it has all worked as expected. Perhaps something was cached last night.

As for the 'Cross posting" I will wait until I do the next update and capture the messages that pop up.

Thanks for the explanation , it encouraged me to go back and have another go.
