How can I delete a category?

  1. Hi,
    I want to do some blog "housecleaning" and first on my list is revamping my categories. How can I delete categories I no longer want? (I assume they have to be empty). Can someone give me the step by step instructions?
    Also, how do I create new categories within a parent category?
    Thank you in advance!

    The blog I need help with is healthyjewishcooking.com.

  2. Please see the support documentation: http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#bulk-actions

    Also, how do I create new categories within a parent category?

    Sub-Category name – As expected, the name of your category.
    Category parent – If you want to nest a category within a category, select the parent category. Otherwise leave at None. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#adding-categories-via-the-dashboard
