I was wondering if it is possible when creating the custom types, if when the post is published, it is automatically set a category?
I have created a custom post type : Green articles, and I can hide the categories, or show them. But I want the post to be added to the green category automatically?
Is that possible?
Yeah, no one really has an answer for this….
I think it defaults to the first one, alphabetically.
I’m developing a real estate solution based on WP for a client and will look into this, since up until now I haven’t mingled with “categories” custom taxonomies (only tag-like).
Good thinking, I will also need to specify a default category, so hope it doesn’t only default to alphabetical
Is this the solution you’re looking for? http://www.wprecipes.com/add-categories-or-tags-to-post-programatically

So you basically just have to change that categories array to dynamically fetch the custom categories of your custom post type, right?
Looks simple, thanks redfactory!

Haha no I actually follow their rss feed in my iGoogle You’re welcome!
Thanks for that. BUT That code requires knowing the posts id and then automatically setting that to have a specific category.
I dont know what my post id will be? How can I apply this to all the posts from a custom post type?
I’ll keep working at it.
OK, so I can pull all the categories in, and say which category ID to apply… BUT I can not apply that to my custom post type? I have to declare the post id? I dont know that yet and want to apply it obviously to more than one post, all the posts from the custom post i created.
