Cannot delete categories!

  • I added about 100 categories, then realized I meant for them to be tags.

    Well, I COULD have used the “category to tag” converter, but I didn’t. I know, I know. I manually checked all my categories and deleted them… or so I thought.

    So it has to leave at least one category as the default. The problem is, it says I have 23 categories, but only one is showing!

    How can I get access to these categories so I can delete them? I want to delete them because they aren’t showing anywhere, and I want to recreate about 5 of them, but the names are already taken it says.

    Please help. Thanks.
