Here’s some things I change/add on new WordPress installs:

  • Upgrade to latest version
  • Delete Hello Dolly and Askimet (unless it’s a personal site) plugins after each upgrade
  • Settings>Media> Uncheck ‘Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders’
  • Settings>Discussion>Uncheck ‘Allow people to post comments on new articles’ (unless you want comments enabled)
  • Settings> Permalinks>Custom Structure = /%category%/%postname%/
  • Posts> Categories: Rename ‘Uncategorized’ category to ‘Uncategorised’
