What’s wrong, and how can I delete them? The blog I need help with is teknophilia.wordpress.com.

If so, you will have to delete or change the name of those tags before you can delete the like-named categories. Also, all posts have to have at least one category assigned to them. If you do not, then wordpress will create a random numbered category and assign it to your posts. Author Posts The topic ‘Unable to delete categories’ is closed to new replies.
