en WordPress.com Forums › Support Deleting sub-categories Author Posts July 24, 2009 at 9:10 pm #383862 vcook1956Member I added a category and then I realized it went under another category that is totally not related. How do I delete the sub-category and make it it’s own category? Thank you for any help as I am new to WordPress. The blog I need help with is virgilcook.wordpress.com. July 24, 2009 at 9:28 pm #383982 thesacredpathStaff Just edit the subcategory and take the child status off at posts > categories.

July 25, 2009 at 1:44 pm #384104 thesacredpathStaff Go to posts > categories, hover your mouse over the subcategory name and below it will appear an edit link or you can just click on the title of the subcategory – either way works.
