en WordPress.com Forums › Support Categories won't go away after delete Author Posts May 18, 2011 at 3:40 am #614705 vansperlingMember I’ve deleted all my categories because I’m doing a rework of my blog. http://vanjoygreeley.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/categories.png shows what the Categories maintenance area looks like. (Shows 1 of 3 pages, but there are no actual Categories in those pages.) But the Categories continue to show up as available when I am in the post creation area. ( http://vanjoygreeley.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/categories2.png ) What’s going on? How can I get rid of these “ghost” categories? Thanks, Vanessa The blog I need help with is vanessajoygree.wordpress.com.

I use four different browsers on a daily basis (Chrome, Opera, Safari and Firefox) and all of them show the same thing after having their caches cleared.

Contact support: we volunteers can’t help. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ May 18, 2011 at 1:40 pm #614893 vansperlingMember Thanks, I’ll do that.
