[resolved] Editing the Magazine Basic theme (4 posts)

    I just installed the "Magazine Basic" theme and would like to get rid of the "music" category listed below the header. It's the only category I have and when I go to the "categories" area in the dashboard, there isn't an option to delete it, as it's the only category.
    In fact, there's text that says, "Deleting a category does not delete the posts in that category. Instead, posts that were only assigned to the deleted category are set to the category Music."
    It's a visual thing. I want to eliminate it. Suggestions?

    I think you should look at header.php of your theme, there must be

    wp_list_categories();

    this code outputs list of categories, so if you don't want category listing on your web you should remove it.

    In the latest version, you can use the new WordPress 3.0 menu system. It is under the Appearance panel in the admin.
