Removing Tag/Category from menu

  1. Is there a way on WordPress.com to remove the tag/category from the menu and customize them? For example can I change this link: http://thoughtsofajeanius.com/category/thee-cody-taylor/ to this: http://www.ThoughtsofaJeanius.com/TheeCodyTaylor? I've googled and YouTubed but can't find anything for .com only .org. Thanks for your help.

    The blog I need help with is thoughtsofajeanius.com.

  2. Please be aware that we cannot change permalink structure on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Categories and Tags pages are automatically generated by the sofware when we publish a post with Categories and Tags assigned to it and we cannot edit and change permalink structure. That can only be done on WordPress.org installs for self hosting.

    WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    I can also see that you don't comprehend that adding static Pages that you create to a custom menu and expecting categories or tags to appear on it is not going to result in success.

  3. You can edit existing Categories from Posts -> Categories in your Dashboard.
    You can edit existing Tags from Posts -> Tags in your Dashboard.
