Author Posts March 24, 2007 at 5:34 am #88125 sonofspamMember There are a few categories (in this case, “Genres”) of music on my blog that I want to delete. But I can’t seem to get rid of them. How can I do it? March 24, 2007 at 7:53 am #88437 sulzMember why can’t you get rid of them? what have you done exactly? March 24, 2007 at 8:48 am #88441 raincoasterMember I’m not 100% sure, but I think if you delete the tag from each post that’s used it, the tag will vanish from your sidebar.

March 25, 2007 at 12:52 am #88522 sulzMember gag… and i thought you did the most obvious thing before! March 28, 2007 at 6:06 am #88599 lavozuvaldeMember for anyone else having problems. a more correct link would be Dashboard>Manage>Categories. Category modification is the second to last on the lower directory. (took me a while to figure it out too – glad I had enough brains to look on the forum to see if anyone else had had a similar problem.) lol :D March 28, 2007 at 9:18 am #88600 sulzMember good on you. fiddling through trial and error is how you learn your way around blogging.

October 13, 2007 at 11:26 pm #88994 safiyaifeMember Hello New to all this. I am trying to delete on my pages (not posts) I went to MANAGE then Categories, but nothing comes up. None of my categories have names. I really don’t remember how they got there in the first place. Thanks for any help October 14, 2007 at 9:37 am #88995 judyb12Member Pages don’t have categories. Can you rephrase what you’re trying to do? Also, please give us a link to your blog. Thanks Author Posts The topic ‘How Can I Delete Categories?’ is closed to new replies.
